Since  the  coniuieiiceinent  of  the  present  Publication,  and  of 
the  former  series  of  similar  papers  entitled  Collectanea  Toro- 
(JRAPIIICA  ET  Genealogica,  a  change  has  come  over  the  form 
of  literature  of  this  description,  whicii  on  the  whole  must  be 
regarded  with  regret.     For  the  first  time  within  more  than  living 

\j  memory,  there  is  no  work  of  English  County  History  now 
^  actually  in  progress.  Many  of  our  best  Topographers  have 
?  terminated  their  mortal  career,  some  of  them  leaving  their  works 

Vv,A  unfinished :  and  it  would  seem  as  if  the  very  abundance  of 
material,  provided  by  the  publication  of  some  of  our  national 
records  and  the  freedom  of  access  to  others,  had  overwhelmed  our 
historical  ardour  and  deterred  us  from  any  new  undertaking  of 
the  kind.  It  is  true  that  the  topographical  history  of  un  entire 
county  is  a  colossal  task,  and  almost  too  great  for  any  single 
hand.  The  age  of  ponderous  and  costly  folios  is  also  passed 
away :  but  that  need  not  prevent  the  production  of  portable  and 
useful  quartos. 

Whilst,  however,  the  magnificent  County  History  is  a  literary 
product  now  perfectly  in  abeyance,  we  have  recejitly  witnessed 
another  vehicle  of  Topography  and  Genealogy  which  has  been 
prosecuted  with  considerable  success.  In  the  memoirs  periodi- 
cally published  by  some  of  the  County  Societies  are  combined 
the  researches  of  many  intelligent  labourers  ;  and  in  these  collec- 
tions will  gradually  be  assembled  a  store  of  very  useful  materials 
for  future  County  Histories  of  a  more   systematic  and  complete 


character.  The  Counties  which  have  been  most  fortunate  in 
obtainiufT  sucli  receptacles  of  antiquarian  lore  are — especially 
Sussex,  Cheshire  and  Lancashire,  Norfolk,  Suffolk,  Somerset- 
shire, and  (to  a  partial  extent)  Devonshire, 

To  other  parts  of  the  country  The  Topographer  and  Genealo- 
gist still  opens  its  pages  for  the  like  object.  It  has  now  been 
determined  to  proceed  with  the  printing  and  publication  of  a 
Tliird  Volume,  in  which  any  fugitive  essays  of  this  character  will 
receive  a  welcome  reception  and  the  iitmost  editorial  care :  and  it 
is  further  intended  that  the  work  shall  include  such  articles  of 
general  application  as  will  be  acceptable  to  the  genealogical  in- 
quirer in  every  part  of  the  country.

To  the  Editor  of  the  Topographer  and  Genealogist. 

Much  has  been  said  and  written  on  the  indigenous  nobiUty 
of  character,  and  general  superiority,  of  persons  of  blood  and 
birth.   Playfair  compiled  liis  stupendous  Peei*age  and  Baronetage 
to  prove,  that  the  great  mass  of  all    that   is   excellent  springs 
from   the  class  usually  denominated   the    ^*  Aristocracy."     And 
he     was     undoubtedly    right;     provided    his    proposition     be 
viewed  in  a  correct  light.     It  is  preposterous   to  suppose   that 
mere  wealth  can  confer  nobility  of  blood ;  and,  without  quoting 
any  of  our  ancient  authorities  for  definitions  of  "  Nobleman " 
and  "  Gentleman,"  it  may  suffice   to  state  that  none  have  ever 
involved  riches  in  its  requisites.     Though   it   is  true,   that  opu- 
lence   may    place  families  in  the  situation    of   matching   with 
superior  houses,  and  thus  "  improving  their  breed  ;  "  yet  in  itself 
it  can  no  more  alter  a  man's  nature,  than  a  bequest  of  a  million 
would  whiten  a  nefjro.     Nothino;   save   an  educated  and  well- 
bred  ancestry  can  engender  that  refinement  and  genius,  which 
constitute   the  essence   of  true  aristocracism  (by  which  I  mean 
to  signify,  intellectual  superiority  in  its  extended  sense),  and 
without  which,   indeed,  all   other  pretensions  to  superiority  are 
vague  and  empty.     It  would  be  quite  as  rational  to  style  all  our 
farmers  and  tradesmen  "  aristocracy,"  as   to  consider  bankers 
and  country   'squires  such,   merely  because  they  are   wealthy. 

VOL.    II.  B 


Many  of  both,  indeed,  but  especially  of  the  latter,  are  intellec- 
tually not  two  removes  from  the  labourers  upon  their  estates. 
Possibly  they  are  fully  worthy  of  the  Norman  ancestor  from 
whom  they  chiim  descent: — but  what  is  there  in  that?  The  day 
is  passed  when  rapacity  and  shedding  blood  were  esteemed  the 
most  noble  properties  :  and  though  such  doctrines  hold  in  every 
nation  in  a  semi-barbarous  state,  now,  every  one,  who  truly 
comprehends  the  respective  claims  and  merits  of  the  different 
descriptions  of  genealogies,  would  much  rather  boast  a  descent 
from  a  house  of  Generosi  than  from  the  most  renowned  of 
Armigeri ;  and  it  is  very  well  known,  that,  while  military  knights 
were  probably  able  neither  to  read  or  write,  a  Knight  of  the 
Carpet  might  be  a  man  of  education.  For  my  part,  I  would 
rather  descend  from  a  Baron's  jester,  or  from  his  chaplain's 
bastard,  than  from  the  Baron  himself. 

The  reason,  however,  that  the  great  mass  of  talent  has  ema- 
nated, of  late  centuries,  from  the  "Aristocracy,"  in  the  usual 
acceptation  of  that  word,  is  unquestionably  because,  by  the  long 
superior  education  and  breeding  of  that  class,  they  have  become 
a  superior  race  of  persons.  Truly  they  may  retrograde;  and, 
according  to  physiologists,  retrogradation  invariably  takes  place 
after  perfection  is  once  attained,  (if  indeed  an  absolute  annihila- 
tion of  the  race  does  not  occur,)  and  this  in  both  the  animal  and 
vegetable  creation  :  but  it  is  long  before  this  perfection  is  at- 
tained. That  certain  marriages,  however,  produce  certain  re- 
sults in  the  issue,  no  one  can  or  will  doubt,  who  has  paid  any 
attention  to  the  subject ;  ^  and  if  an  instance  were  required  to 
prove  its  truth,  let  "  Lord  Brougham"  be  referred  to,  as  a  double 
illustration :  first,  in  him  are  concentrated  the  talents  of  several 
gifted  individuals,  both  paternally  and  maternally ;  secondly,  it 
would  appear,  the  "  perfection,"  of  which  physiologists  speak, 
has  been  attained  in  him  ;  and  that  his  posterity,  if  any,  will 

Nor  does  the  descent  of  properties  pertain  solely  to  the  mind. 
We  hear  of  a  certain  cast  of  countenance  and  feature  being 
assigned  to  the  Stuarts,  the  Bourbons,  the  Caesars,  &c. ;  and 
undoubtedly  the  same  might   be  said  of  a  family  of  lesser  note.

Mrs.  Trollope    tells  us,   tiiat   the  Willoughbys  are  a  house  re- 
markable for  the  regulaiity  of  their  features;  ^^  and    I   myself 
could  adduce  several  other  fiimilies,  of  whom   like   remarks  may 
be  made.     And  as  to  the  preservation  of  family  likenesses,  there 
are  instances  almost    incredible.     I    know   of  individuals,   not 
nearer   relations  than    sixth  cousins,   between  whom  an   extra- 
ordinary resemblance  prevails.     Doubtless  in  many  old  county 
families   the  long  preservation  of  a  similar  cast  of  features,  and 
countenance,  may  be  attributed  to  the  matches,  generation  after 
generation,  into  the  same  families,   or  into  families  who  inherit 
much  the  same  blood  :  e.  g.   in   Staifordshire  and  the  adjacent 
district,  it  would  be  difficult  to  say  how   often  such  families  as 
the  Kynnersleys,   Adderleys,    Sneyds,   and    Hortons  have    con- 
nected themselves,   directly,   or  through   the  medium    of  other 
houses  :   and  thus  a  family  marrying  its  own  kindred,  generation 
after  generation,  how  is  it  wonderful    that  it  should  remain  the 
same,  and  retain  much  the  same  properties  ?    Indeed,  whenever 
a  striking   dissimilarity    exists  between   parent  and   child,    the 
father  being  certain,   it  will  always  be  found  that  the  mother 
derives  from  a  very  different  race  (or   perhaps  nation)  from  her 
husband.     That,   however,  such   cross  matches  greatly  improve 
the   race,   is   well   known  to    agriculturists,  and   that   the  long 
"  breeding  in  and  in"  produces  effects   equally  detrimental.    Of 
the  latter,  indeed,  I  could  adduce  a  frightful  instance  in  a  very 
noble  family.     And  while  touching  on  this  point,  I  may  suggest, 
that  it  is  probably  to  the  very  cross   "  alliance  "   which  usually 
occurs  between  the  parents  of  bastards,  where  one  of  the  two  is 
a  person  of  birth,  breeding,  and  talent,  that  we  are  to  attribute 
the  eminence  that  several  persons  born   out  of  wedlock    have 
attained  :  for,  inheriting  the  genius  consequent  on  a  long  course    / 
of  education  and  refinement  of  the  progenitors  of  one  parent, 
strengthened  and  refreshed  by  a  cross  blood  from  the  other,  such 
illegitimate  persons,  thrown  upon  their  own  resources  for  their 
worldly  fame  and  success,  soon  prove,  when  the  high  and  noble, 
the  intellectual  and  refined  properties,   deposited  in   them  from 
their  progenitors,   are  stimulated  to  exertion,   by  necessity  or 
otherwise,  how  highly  they  are  entitled  to,   and  how  completely 
they  do,  tower  above  the  vulgar  herd,  and  their  plodding  labours.

Mr.  Samuel  Warren  may  insinuate  that  tlie  absence  of  a  mar- 
riage ceremonial  can  alter  the  results  in  the  issue ;  ^  but  it  is 
contrary  to  fact,  and  preposterous  to  a  reasonable  mind.  In- 
deed I  would  tell  him,  that  tlie  loophole  of  illegitimacy  is,  in 
1  the  majority  of  cases,  the  only  mode  of  accounting  for  superior 
qualities  in  persons  of  lowly  station.  Truly  there  is  hardly  an 
English  family  now  extant  which  is  not,  more  or  less,  mongrel: 
an  evil  which  is  inseparable  from  a  commercial  nation.  Still, 
view  the  question  of  die  "  heritability  of  properties  "  in  what 
light  one  will,  it  resolves  itself  into  assigning  the  "  aristocracy" 
(in  the  ordinary  meaning  of  the  word)  the  great  mass  of  talent. 
Genius  or  natural  ability  must  have  an  origin,  and  that  origin 
must  rest  in  the  parents  or  more  remote  progenitors  of  its  pos- 
sessor. And  allowing  that  occasionally  persons  of  lowly  birth 
have  attained  eminence,  (though  I  should  much  like  to  inves- 
tigate their  real  and  not  reputed  origin,  and  the  conjugal  fidelity 
of  their  maternal  progenitors,)  their  properties  have  almost 
always  been  merged  in  and  amalgamated  with  the  aristocracy's, 
by  the  matches  of  their  children.  Not  that  I  have  any  desire  to 
overturn  the  principle,  that  a  family  may,  by  a  long  superior 
course  of  breeding,  station,  and  education  alone  be  improved  ; 
for  it  is  only  in  accordance  with  the  general  maxim  of  the  muta- 
bility of  every  thing. 

Mrs.  Gore,  contrary  to  Mrs.  Trollope,  may  fly  into  opposite 
extremes,  and  insinuate  that  a  very  short  time  passed  in  the 
society  of  superior  persons,  "  copying  their  manners,"  &c.  is 
sufficient  to  level  all  differences,  and  to  qualify  the  most  indi- 
genous blackguard  for  ranking  himself  with  patricians;  and,  as 
far  as  external  observances  extend,  Mrs.  Gore  may  be  right : 
indeed,  a  perusal  and  digestion  of  one  of  the  numerous  editions 
of  "  Hints  on  Etiquette,"  would  answer  the  same  ends.  But  to 
assert  that  such  a  course  can  confer  the  mind  of  a  gentleman ; 
and  that  there  is  no  class  indigenously  superior;  no  class  in 
whom  that  "  sensitive  refinement,"  which  is  the  distinctive  mark 
of  true  gentility ;  that  sensitive  refinement,  which  stands  so  far 
above,  so  far  aloof  from,  and  is  so  entirely  beyond  tlie  compre- 
hension and  appreciation  of  persons  engaged  in  trade  and  busi- 
ness, or  at  least  those  who  devote  their  whole  life  to  the  accumu- 
lation  of  wealth   and    worldly    influence,    is  equally    false  and 

'■  "  Ten  Tliousand  a  Year." 


preposterous.  It  is,  indeed,  this  trading,  utilitarian,  and 
mercenary,  or,  in  one  word,  which  will  combine  much,  this 
truly  "  American  "  body,  w'ho  are  the  class  to  found  their 
"gentility"  on  the  study  of  "  Hints  on  Etiquette,"  &.c.  But 
the  mi7id  of  a  gentleman  is  never  theirs.  It  is  the  invariable 
concomitant,  and  the  accompaniment  only,  of  genius  and  refine- 
ment; and  it  has  as  little  concern  with  wealth  as  with  trade  and 
business.  ^ 

That  there  are,  however,  many  sceptics  upon  my  propositions 
there  can  be  no  doubt :  and  to  those  who  have  only  a  super- 
ficial and  general  acquaintance  with  genealogy,  it  is  by  no  means 
wonderful  that  specimens,  apparently  contradictory,  should  occa- 
sionally present  themselves.  But  the  great  error,  in  all  these 
matters,  arises  from  placing  a  higher  credit  to  paternal  descents, 
and  deeming  such  as  of  greater  consequence  than  they  are  en- 
titled to.  In  Germany  no  one  is  considered  a  gentleman,  till 
lie  can  prove  his  sixteen  great-gi-eat-grand-parents  were  all  of 
noble  blood.  And  this  is  undoubtedly  infinitely  more  rational 
than  the  modern  system  of  ratino*  genealogies  in  England.  I 
say  "  modern,"  because  the  English  system  was  formerly  the 
same  as  the  continental  :  for  in  the  edition  of  Bailey's  Dic- 
tionary of  1728,  we  find  the  word  "  Gentleman"  thus  defined. 
And  it  is  needless  to  tell  you,  that,  til!  Johnson's  appeared, 
Bailey's  Dictionary  had  the  first  reputation,  (though  the  defini- 
tions of  our  old  lawyers  on  the  subject  were  as  contradictory  and 
unsatisfactory,  as  they  were  indefinite  and  incomprehensible) :  but 
this  system  is  unquestionably  the  most  correct  and  satisfactory, 
for  it  presents,  at  once,  the  great  mass  of  the  blood  of  which  the 
claimant  is  most  probably  composed ;  or  at  least  displays  the 
most  important,  and  all  his  nearest,  progenitors.  A  modern 
English  pedigree  is  nothing  more  than  a  cloak  for  the  real  blood 
of  its  representatives ;  it  details  nothing  save  a  mere  male  line 
of  progenitors,  the  ancestors  in  tail  male ;  and,  though  it  ascend 
to  remote  antiquity,  what  is  there  in  that?  Antiquity  of  fomily 
is  an  absurd  boast,  (patej'nal  descents  considered  solely  are 
alluded  to ;)  for  a  man  now  living  does  not  possess— admitting 
his  pedigree  to  be  proved— in  his  whole  frame  one  1,0 18, 51 6th

the  above,  and  similar  sentiments  and  opinions. 


of  his  blood,  that  of  a  lineal  ancestor,  of  his  own  name,  living  in 
the  time  of  Richard  I. ;  unless,  indeed,  he  perchance  descends 
from  him  through  other  than  his  paternal  channel  of  pedigree  ; 
and  in  calling  such  a  man  his  ancestor,  there  would  be  as  mucli 
reason  as  in  acknowledging  274,877,906,944  collateral  kindred  : 

,  in  short,  persons  who  boast  the  antiquity  of  their  family  had 
better  place  Adam  at  the  top  of  their  pedigrees,  and  claim  re- 
lationship with  the  whole  world.  For  though  this  will  sound 
marvellous  to  those  unconversant  with  the  subject,  it  is  a  mere 
point  of  arithmetic,  and  foUov.s  as  naturally  as  upon  a  man's 
acknowledging  brothers  and  sisters  because  they  proceed  from  a 
conmion  parent  with  him.  This  may  illucidate  the  absurdity  of 
English  genealogical  rights,  as  they  are  now  usually  supposed 
to  be  held.  It  is  nonsense:  a  man's  nearest  progenitors  are  his 
most  important :  and  seven  generations  of  good  blood,  imme- 
diately preceding  him,  are  worth  all  the  more  remote  preten- 
sions ;  especially  if  the  latter  are  to  be  only  reached  through  a 
chain  of  inferior  persons. 

But  paternal  pedigrees,  considered  solely,  are  altogether  ab- 
surd and  delusive,  and  that  in  every  respect.  If  not  of  higher 
importance,  the  maternal  descent  of  mother  and  daughter,  or 
what  our  lawyers  would  call  the  "  tail-female"  line,  is  certainly 
of  equal  consequence. 

I  shall  now  give  some  cogent  reasons  for  this ;  and  then  pro- 
ceed to  record,  with  your  permission,  in  the  pages  of  the  Topo- 
grapher and  Genealogist,  seven  generations  of  a  pedigree  of 
this  description,  both  to  illustrate  my  proposition,  and  to  pre- 
serve its  subject  matter  henceforth. 

r  First.  Under  the  law  of  nature,  the  offspring  follow  the  mo- 
ther, not  the  father.  Partus  sequitur  ventretn.  Their  assigna- 
tion to  the  father  is  an  ordinance  of  man,  (and  perhaps,  indeed, 
merely  of  the  Law,)  not  of  God. 

Secondly.  In  the  majority  of  cases,  the  husband  after  mar- 
riage cleaves  to  his  wife,  and  her  connexions,  rather  than  his 
own.  'I  he  wife,  moreover,  usually  gives  the  station  and  social 
/  connexion  ;  and  it  is  almost  a  proverb,  that  her  relations  and 
friends  are  always  found  in  her  husband's  house,  rather  than  are 
his  own. 

Thirdly.     Though  the   father   of  the  children   can  never  be 

I      regarded  as  a  matter  of  absolute  certainty,  being  never  known 


save  to  the  mother,  the  mother  is  and  must  always  be  a  matter      ' 
of  notoriety,  and  most  unquestionable  in  every  respect. 

Fourthly.     According  to  physiologists,  the  issue  inherit  more     [^<  ,,■ 
properties  from  the   mother  than  the  father  :  which  alone  shows 
how  absurd  it  is   to  estimate  the  paternal  pedigree  as  the  most 

Fifthly.  In  addition  to  the  last  reason,  it  is  well  known  that 
the  issue  receive  their  early  "  education "  from  their  mother 
in  almost  every  case ;  while  they  seldom  imbibe  any  properties 
whatever  from  their  father,  through  that  medium,  at  least. 

Sixthly.  From  the  second  and  fifth  reasons,  it  follows,  that 
the  issue  are  usually  associated  with  their  maternal  connexions 
rather  than  their  paternal,  and  consequently  imbibe  their  pro- 
perties proportionately. 

Seventhly,  and  lastly.     The  fallacy  of  founding  genealogical 
pretensions  on  the  mere  paternal  line,  cannot  be  more  completely 
illustrated   than    by  the    consequence  which    naturally  follows  ^  •    . 
thereupon ;    viz.   that  it  renders  it  impossible    for    a   plebeian  ^  '^  '^ 
family  to  become  patrician :  for  the  inale  line  never  alters,  at  least -^'"6 
ostensibly;  and  the  only  genealogical  alteration,  which  can  take  ^  ^^  ' 
place,  must  result  from  its  marriages.)  and   the  fresh   supplies  of  it  ,'./■-• 
blood,  which  it  receives  from  other  families  through  its  wives  and 
mothers.     Thus  the  same  set  of  fomilies  may  remain  aristocratic,  li^',    • 
SO  long  as  they  last ;  yet  as  soon  as  tliey  expire,  their  places  are*-)/.     < 
not  to  be  supplied,  but  aristocracy   itself  disappears  !     This  is    , 
ridiculous  enough  ;  and   at  once  abstracts  from  paternal  pedi- 
grees the  very  foundations  on  which   they  rest   their  pretensions 
to    consideration.     No :  a  pedigree  is  and  must  be  made  up  of 
the  matches  between  different  families.     Take  away  its  matches 
into  other  houses,  and,  if  it  does  not  cease  to  deserve   the  name 
of  a  pedigree,  it  loses  all  its  value,  at  any  rate.      Thus  that 
pedigree,  or  line  of  ancestry,  which  developes  the  descendants' 
blood   most  perfectly  is  the  most  important;  and  none  can  do 
this  more  completely  than  a  tail  female,  or  a  mother  and  daugh- 
ter descent.    For  the  name  and  family  changes  every  generation ; 
and,  though  I  admit  that  it  enters  no  greater  number  of  families 
than  a  paternal  pedigree  would,  yet  it  passes  through  what  it  does 
enter  ;  and,  instead  of  drawing  one  female  out  of  the  new  family 
touched  upon,  it  discusses  it  at  length,  and  gives  a  whole  gene- 
ration ;  thus  exhibiting  much  more  honestly  and  fully  the  real

pedigree  of  the  existing  descendiints,  than  any  other  system  of 
genealogy  could  do.  I  can  only  add,  that,  after  long  obser- 
vation on  the  subject,  my  certain  conviction  is  the  series  of  pro- 
positions contaiiied  in  this  letter.  Undoubtedly,  we  may,  and 
constantly  do,  find  several  brothers  and  sisters  very  different 
from,  and  unlike  each  other ;  but  this  is  no  argument  against 
what  I  have  written.  I  do  not  pretend  to  lay  down  the  pro- 
portions in  which  persons  inherit  from  their  several  procreating 
ancestors  :  but  I  do  maintain  that  in  one  or  other  of  our  pro- 
genitors all  our  properties  will  be  found  to  exist,  provided  we 
have  the  means  of  ascertaining  what  their  properties  were.  It 
is  well  known  to  Physiologists  that  no  child  ever  took  entirely, 
and  solely,  after  one  parent ;  though  I  have  already  stated  the 
mother  is  generally  supposed  to  give  the  greater  share.  It  is 
also  notorious  that  where  one  certain  line  of  properties  are  de- 
rived from  the  father's  family,  another  set  assuredly  come  from 
the  mother's.  Walker  has  given  minute  information  on  the 
rules  which  guide  the  transmission  of  properties  from  the  respec- 
tive parents;  which,  however,  it  is  unnecessary  to  enter  upon 
here.  I  am  fully  aware  that  one  child  may  be  more  like  its 
mother  than  its  grandfather,  while  another  is  an  opposite  illus- 
tration. But  there  can  be  no  doubt  that  in  one  or  other  pro- 
genitor the  properties  of  all  will  be  found. 

I  will  now  proceed  to  the  tail-female  pedigree  that  I  have  pro-

laston  Hall,  co.  Stafford ;  but  he  died  without  issue  by  either, 
before  1819.     The  said  W^.  M.  Marston  was  also  nephew  of 

house  in  that  parish  ;  but  his  posterity  have  ceased  to  be  concerned  there.  He 
made  his  will  18th  May  1787  ;  proved  1st  May  1790,  at  Dublin  ;  and  had  issue

but  the  locale  of  connections  and  residence,  establish  this  point.  It  is  most  pro- 
bable the  family  sprang  from  the  Cleobury  Mortimer  Marstons  ;  but  it  is  singular 
that  Everard  Marston,  third  son  of  Gilbert  Marston,  of  Slawston,  co.  Leicester,

of  the  old  Shropshire  house  of  Thornes,  of  Shelvoeke.     Mr. 
Windsor  made  his  will  2nd  July  1810,  and  divers  subsequent 
codicils;  and  dying  at  Shrewsbury,  aet.  65,  19  January  1813, 
it  was  proved  on  the  4th  ]May  1813,  in  the  Prerogative  Court

who  bravely  fell,  18  June  1815,  at  Waterloo,  in  his  2'Uh  year, 
s.  p.  and  a  monumental  inscription  remains  to  his  memory  in 
St.  Mary's,  Shrewsbury.  2.  John  Windsor,  Esq.  of  Highwood, 
CO.  Stafford,  who  inherited  his  brother's  wealth.     He  married, 
2nd  Aug.  1820,  Ellen,  daughter  of  William  Webster,  Esq.

to  the  Rev.  G.  P.  Lowther,  of  Overington,  co.  Hants,  a  mem-

Hannah  Mauston,  the  third  daughter  of  Richard  and  Bar- 
bara, was  born  1769-70,  and  was  married  at  the  age  of  nineteen 
from  Thorpe  on   the  Hill,   the  seat  of  her  aunt   Procter,  (witii 
whom  she  was   then  staying,)  at  Rothwell,  co.  York,  17th  May 
1789,   to  Edward  D'Oyly,  '"^  Esq.  then  of  Newton  Lodge,  near 
Wakefield,  co.  York,  but  afterwards  of  Sion  Hill,  near  Thirsk, 
in  the  same  shire,  lord  of  the  manor  of  Kirby  Wiske,  and  a 
Justice  of  Peace   for  the  North    Riding.     This  gentleman  was 
a  member  of  the  family  of  D'Oyly,  of  Shottisham,  in  Norfolk, 
and  closely  related  to  the  late  Sir  John  Hadley  D'Oyly,  Bart.,

tach,  it  is  extremely  doubtful  Avhether  he  and  his  posterity  could  inherit  the  Baro- 
netcy. His  connection  with  the  Baronets  was  thus :  At  least,  it  is  acknowledged 
on  both  sides  that  he  was  the  nearest  male  D'Oyly,  cousin  to  Sir  John  :  and  thus 
it  has  always  been  detailed  by  the  family  ;  while  there  is  no  reason  to  doubt  its

a  poor  clergyman,  became  a  Baronet  on  the  decease  of  his  cousin,  Sir  Edmund 
D'Oyly,  in  1763,  and  died  the  following  year,)  married  Jane,  daughter  of  Richard 
Walker,  Esq.  of  Petworth,  in  Sussex,  and  died  in  17(^1,  before  the  family  honours 
devolved  on  his  elder  brother  Hadley  ;  having  had  issue,  by  his  said  wife,  four  sons, 
and  as  many  daughters  :

II.  John  D'Oyly.     III.  Thomas  D'Oyly.     Both  of  whom   died  s.  p.  or  un- 
married, before  1770. 

IV.  Hadley  D'Oyly,  who  died  young. 

I.  Elizabeth  D'Oyly,  living  unmarried  1768.     She  is  believed  to  have  em- 
barked for  India,  but  to  have  been  lost  at  sea. 

II.  Jane  D'Oyly,  who  died  an  infant, 

III.  Mary  D'Oyly,  who  died  s,  p.  before  1768. 

IV.  Jane  D'Oyly,  second  so  christened,  who  is  believed  to  have  accompanied 
her  sister  to  India,  and  to  have  shared  her  fate. 

Edward  D'Oy'ly,  only  surviving  son,  entered  the  East  India  Company's  Mer- 
chants' service;  and  was  sometime  Purser  of  an  East  Indiaman.  This  gentleman, 
however,  in  the  spring  of  1767,  was  paying  his  addresses  to  one  Anna  Maria  Blacky 
the  daughter  and  at  last  heiress  of  Jonathan  Black,  of  Westminster,  gent,  a  i-ich 
brewer  in  the  metropolis,  (by  Elizabeth  his  wife,  daughter,  and  at  last  sole  heiress, 
of  George  Burnell,  Esq.  of  Lofthouse,  near  Wakefield,  in  Yorkshire,)  and,  un- 
known to  her  parents,  succeeded  in  inducing  her  to  elope  with  him,  and  was  mar- 
ried to  her  at  Gretna  Green.  They  returned,  hoping  for  the  usual  forgiveness  ;  but, 
instead  of  this,  her  rich,  purse-proud  parents  tore  her  from  him,  and  forced  her 
home,  permitting  no  intercourse  ;  he  soon  after  sailed  for  India,  and  deter- 
mined, it  would  seem,  to  take  no  further  trouble  about  the  matter.  But  her  parents 
had  soon  cause  to  repent  their  rashness  :  their  daughter  had  proved  pregnant ;  and 
Mr.  D'Oyly  was  now  beyond  recall  for  a  legal  marriage  to  be  solemnized  before  the 
birth  of  his  child.  Every  attempt,  however,  was  made  to  apprise  him  of  the  state 
of  affairs;  and  though  he,  poor  young  man,  made  every  haste  to  return,  he  only 
arrived  in  England  Sept.  1768.  But  his  child  was  born  in  the  preceding  March  or 
April.  Nevertheless,  he  was,  immediately  after  his  return,  legally  married  to  Miss 
Black  ;  viz.  on  the  5th  Oct.  1768,  by  licence  granted  the  preceding  day  at  the 
Vicar  General's  Office,  Doctors'  Commons :  for  privacy  sake,  the  marriage  was 
solemnized  at  St.  Mary's  Magdalen,  Bermondsey,  Surrey  ;  and  the  whole  was  pre- 
served a  profound  secret.     His  child  so  born,  and  christened  after  himself,  was

verging  on  twenty-one  when  that  event  occurred,  he  came  down 
to  Yorkshire  to  his  maternal  grandmother,  Mrs.  Black,  of  Loft- 
house,  who  by  the  death,  s,  p.  of  her  brothers,  James  Burnell, 
Esq.  of  Lofthouse,  (who  had  greatly  increased  the  wealth  of  his 
family  by  the  profession  of  solicitor,  having  practised  from  an- 
terior to  r/29  till  his  death  in  1780,)  and  William  Burnell,  Esq. 
of  Newton  Lodge,  near  Wakefield,  had  succeeded  to  all  the 
property  of  her  family,  while  he  Edward  D^Oyly,  her  grandson, 
had  already  acquired  that  of  the  Blacks  from  his  mother,  who 
had  become  sole  heiress  of  her  only  brother  Jonathan  Black, 
Esq.  Barrister  at  Law,  and  of  her  sister  Frances  Black,  who 
died  unmarried.  Thus,  when  at  Lofthouse,  Mr.  D'Oyly  be- 
came acquainted  with  Hannah  Marston,  then  resident  with 
her  aunt  Procter,  of  Thorpe  on  the  Hill  in  the  same  parish 
(Roth well)  ;  to  whom  he  was  married,  after  a  very  short  ac- 
quaintance, as  already  mentioned,  and  he  then  became  seated 
at  Newton  Lodge,  the  residence  of  his  grand-uncle,  William 
Burnell ;  where  he  remained  till  the  decease,  in  1T95,  of  his 
grandmother,  Mrs.  Black,  who  leaving  him  all  her  property, 
he  was  admitted  to  the  copyholds  held  of  the  manor  of  Wake- 
field, as  her  grandson  and  heir  at  law,  20  March  1795 ;  and  he 
then  began  the  world  with  a  property  of  4,000/.  to  5,000/.  per 

Edward  D'Oyly,  Esq.  mentioned  in  the  text.     Edward  D'Oyly,  sen.  made  his  will 
4th  Feb.  1769,  leaving  all  the  little  property  he  had,  to  his  wife,  sailed  for  India  not 
long  after,  and  died  at  Beucoolen,  in  Sumatra.     Anna  Maria,  his  wife,  survived 
him  many  years,  and  lived  for  some  time  in  Marylebone,  but  latterly,  and  princi- 
pally, in  Palace-yard,  Westminster.     She  made  her  will,  11  Oct.  1783,  leaving  all 
her  property  to   her   only  son  the  said  Edward  D'Oyly,   and  appointing  him  sole 
executor.     She  died  at  her  residence  in  Palace-yard,  Westminster,  10th  July  1788, 
of  a  cancer  ;  and  her  son  being  not  quite  of  age,  he  proved  her  will  in  no  court, 
but  being  principally  a  devise  of  lands,  it  was  registered  31  Oct.  1783,  at  the  Wake- 
field Registry  for  instruments  affecting  real   property  in   the  West   Riding,  Book 
C.  Y.  page  354,  No.  449.     By  her   Edward  D'Oyly,  sen.,  whose  death   occurred 
about  1770,  but  was  not  heard  of  in  England  before  Feb.  1772,  had  only  the  said 
I.  Edward  D'Oyly  :  the  singular  circumstances  of  whose  nativity  were  such 
as  to  have  always  been  kept  a  family  secret ;  and  he  appears  on  the  court  roll  of 
the  manor  of  Wakefield  as  "  heir  at  law."     Still  it  is  presumed  that  his  legiti- 
macy,  though  unquestionable  in  Scotland,  is  doubtful  in  England.     However,  on 
the  return  to  England  of  his  cousin.  Sir  J.  H.  D'Oyly,  after  the  long  separation 
of  the   two  branches   of  the   family  (both  of  them,  Edward  and  Sir  John,  having 
been  brought  up  by  maternal  relations),  they  made  out  their  relationship,  and  it

annum,  principally  consisting  of  real  estates  at  Rothwell,  Wake- 
field, Lofthouse,  and  Stanley,  in   the  West  Riding ;  all  "  Bur- 
nell "  property,   they  being  a  respectable  old   family,  who  had 
been  settled  at   Lofthouse  and  Rothwell  from  the  year   1570, 
claimed  descent  from  those  in  Notts,  bore  their  arms,  and  were 
among  the  claimants  for  their  estates  after  the  death  of  D'Arcy 
Burnell,  Esq.  in  177- :  while  the  Blacks  claimed  from  Black  of 
Temple,  in  Scotland.     For  some   time  after  this,  Mr.  D'Oyly 
resided  at  Adwick  Hall  (Adwick  le  Street),  in  Yorkshire:  and 
in  June  1797  made  a  settlement  on  his  wife  and  children,  his 
brother-in-law    the   Rev.  Henry  Caye  Adams  being  a  trustee 
therein.     On  the  17th  May  1799,  Mr.  D'Oyly  contracted  for 
the  purchase,  of  Metcalfe  Graham  Steele,  Esq.   of  the  manor  of 
Kirby  Wiske,  near  Thirsk,  in  the  North  Riding,  the  manor  of 
"  Sion  Hill,"  or  "  Kirby  Lodge,"  and  an  estate  at  Bracken- 
burgh,  for  1 1,500/.,  which  was  absolutely  conveyed   to  him  in 
1801.     Here  Mr.  D'Oyly  then  settled,  and  greatly  improved 
and  beautified  that  estate,  and  mansion :  he  became  a  magistrate 
for  the  North  Riding,   and  lived  for  long,  highly  popular  in  the 
district.     He  built  Scipton  bridge,  near  Topcliffe,  entirely  at  his 
own  expense,  and  was  quite  celebrated  for  his  munificence,  pub- 
lic spirit,  and  liberahty.     Both  he  and  his  wife  were  very  chari- 
table to  the  poor,  and  most  estimable  persons  in   every  respect; 
while  they  held  the  first  rank   amongst  the  North  Riding  aristo- 
cracy ;  and  Sion  Hill  was  celebrated   for  its  hospitality.     Few 
could  discharge  their    duty  as   a  magistrate  better    than    Mr. 
D'Oyly  :  while  the  constant  employment  which   he  afforded  to 
labourers  and  work-people,  caused  him  to  be  liked  by  that  class. 
Both  Mr.  and  Mrs.  D'Oyly  were  persons  of  great  scientific  capa- 
city.    Mr.  D'Oyly  was  a  most  beautiful  draftsman,  an  ingenious 
mechanic,  and  possessed  of  great  taste  for  music.     Lie  was  also 
a  great  wit ;  and,  though  perfectly  free  from  every  vice,  a  most 
convivial,  though  extremely  gentlemanly  man  :  his  mind  and  man- 
ners being  equally  refined.   He  was  always  sincere,  yet  most  kind : 
and  while  adhering  to  the  forms  and  ceremonies  of  good  breed- 
ing, no  one  could  ever  doubt  but  that  the  sentiment  was  there. 
Mrs.  D'Oyly,  though  extremely  rigid   in   her  religious  obser- 
vances, was  less  popular  than  her  husband.     She  was  a  proud 
and  aristocratic  gentlewoman;  who,  while  her  husband  was  fond 
of  society,  preferred  a  strict  though  most  refined  seclusion  from

proud  than  vail) :  but  she  passed  almost  her  whole  life  in  the 
bosom  of  her  family,  devoting  herself  to  her  children  and  the 
pursuits  to  which  her  taste  led  her;  and  of  these,  botany  was 
one  of  the  most  prominent.  She  was  a  woman,  however,  of  no 
ordinary  scientific  capacity,  having  been  presented  with  divers 
medals  by  learned  societies ;  and  two,  which  she  received  from 
the  "  Society  for  promoting  and  encouraging  the  Arts  and 
Sciences,"  are  possessed  by  the  writer  of  this  article.

was  an  excellent  draftsman,  also  entered  the  East  India  Com-

He  married,  circa  1819,  in  India,  his  paternal  relative,  Char-

D'Oyly,  who  long  resided  in  the  usual  East  Indian  splendour 
at  Dumdum,  near  Calcutta,  and  held  several  lucrative  ap-

Bayley,  1828-9,  to  be  brought  up  in  England;  and  subse- 
quently suffering  from  the  heat  of  the  climate,  repaired  with 
his  wife  and  younger  sons  to  Sydney,  in  New  South  Wales, 
for  change  of  air.  Hearing,  however,  that  the  Delhi  Maga-

to  return  to  India  :  and  lucklessly  in  his  haste  sailed  with  his 
wife  and  younger  children  in  the  ill-fated  ship  "  Charles

occurrence  took  place  iu  August  1834.  For  lono-  their  fate 
was  unknown ;  and  might  to  this  hour  have  remained  so,  had 
it  not  been  for  the  exertions  of  Captain  D'Oyly's  brother  in

caused  Government  to  send  out  a  frigate  of  war  in  quest  of 
the  crew  and  passengers  of  the  Charles  Eaton ;  which  resulted

*  *  Since  the  above  article  was  written,  the  writer  has  received  a  pedigree  cer- 
tified by  Robert  D'Oyly,  of  Auckland,  New  Zealand.— Edward  D'Oyly,  Esq.  of 
.Sion  Hall,  is  stated  to  have  been  born  on  St.  Swithin's  Day  (15thJuly)  1770  ;  and  to 
have  been' married  very  early  (to  prevent  his  going  to  sea,  which  he  contemplated), 
while  a  Commoner  of  Trinity  College,  Cambridge,  to  Hannah  Marston ;  who  was 
born  28th  Nov.  17G9.  (If  this  date  of  his  birth  be  correct,  it  would  place  it  after 
the  legal  marriage  of  his  parents;  but,  though  the  day  may  be  right,  it  is  almost 
certain  the  year  is  wrong.) 



Of  the  patronymic  of  this  ancient  and  truly  respectable 
family,  no  certain  derivation  can  be  given.  The  name,  which 
was,  three  centuries  ago,  written  "  Hodylowe,"  "  Hoddelow," 
"  HoudiJovv,"  "  Hodelow,"  &.c.  was  undoubtedly  foreign,  and, 
if  the  statement  in  the  will  of  an  early  member  of  the  family  can 
be  relied  on,  or  rather  the  inference  from  it, — "  that  the  family 
came  from  Holland,"— of  course  Dutch ;  and  that  the  Hodilows 
settled  in  England  in  the  reign  of  Henry  VH.  It  must  not, 
however,  be  concealed  that  there  was  a  family  of  "  Hovvndes- 
lowe,"  (sometimes  softened  to  "  Hodeslow,")  resident  in  Eng- 
land in  the  time  of  Edward  IV. ;  but  again,  every  endeavour  to 
connect  these  persons  with  the  family  of  which  it  is  now  intended 
to  treat,  has  been  used,  unsuccessfully. 

Thomas  a  Hodilow,  who  must  have  been  born  before  or 
about  14-59  (38  Hen.  VI.)  founded  the  family;  and  is  believed 
to  have  been  a  Dutchman  by  birth.  Whether  he  came  to  Eng- 
land  or  not,  is  unknown ;  yet,  were  he  or  were  his  sons  the  set- 
tlers in  this  country,  it  seems  probable  that  the  family  came  over 
with  Henry  VII.  A.D.  1485.  Sure  it  is  that  he  married,  and 
this  probably  about  1480  ;  though  his  wife's  name  is  unrecorded ; 
and  had  issue,  three  sons,  who  all  resided  in  Cambridgeshire : 

I.  Robert  Hodilow,  of  whom  presently. 

II.  John  Hodilow,  of  Histon,  co.  Cambridge,  living  1520 
(11  Hen.  VIII.)  who  was  progenitor  of  the  Hodilows  of  Im- 
pington,  in  that  county  ;  whose  history  see  post. 

III.  Peter  Hodilow,  who  settled  in  the  city  of  Ely,  in  Cam- 
bridgeshire, and  lived  there  temp.  Hen.  VIII.  He  made  his 
will  (a  very  short  one)  on  his  death-bed,  4th  Jan.  1546,  leav-

evidence  of  this  point,  it  may  be  safer  to  call  him  '•  — —  Hodilow."

pi'operty  she  likewise  leaves  to  the  poor  of  Ely,  and  to  the 
repairs  of  the  highways,  at  the  discretion  and  oversight  of  one 
John  Levette  ;  whom  she  appoints  sole  executor.  She  died 
s.  p. ;  and  her  will  was  soon  after  registered  and  proved  in 
Ely  Consistory  Court. 

Robert  Hodilow,  eldest  of  the  three  sons,  lived  temp. 
Hen.  Vlir.  at  Chettisham,  in  Cambridgeshire,  near  the  city  of 
Ely,  and  followed  the  vocation  of  agriculture ;  owning  an  estate 
at  Chettisham,  which  he  appears  to  have  farmed  himself.^  This 
gentleman  was  married,  before  1522,  to  a  lady  named  Alice ; 
but  of  what  family  is  unrecorded.  Being  possessed  of  consider- 
able property,  he  made  his  will,  "  hole  of  mind  and  memory,^' 
January  1540-1.  He  desires  burial  at  St.  Mary's,'^  Ely,  leaves 
to  Thomas,  his  son,  his  books,  and  "  all  his  debts  oiving  to  him 
in  Holland:"  and  all  his  lands  and  houses  in  Chettisham  and 
Ely,  to  Alice,  his  wife,  for  life  (she  keeping  a  widow),  and,  after 
her  death,  to  Thomas,  his  son.  He  leaves  his  debts  in  Cam- 
bridge to  his  said  wife  Alice  also ;  and  makes  bequests  to  his 
two  brothers,  and  leaves  to  the  four  daughters  of  his  brother 
"  that  dvvelleth  in  Hyston,"  (John,)  the  amount  of  a  debt  owed 
to  him  by  their  father.  Testator  also  makes  several  bequests  to 
his  servants  (to  one  of  them,  Robert  Gill,  a  cow)  and  others ;  to 
St.  Mary's  church  at  Ely,  and  to  the  poor  of  that  city.  He  ap- 
points Alice  his  wife  and  Thomas  his  son  executors,  and  Ed- 
mund Heynesworth  supervisor.  As  in  most  wills  of  the  period, 
many  of  the  bequests  are  of  cattle.  He  appoints  his  wife  and 
son  residuary  legatees.  He  died  soon  after;  and  his  will  was 
proved  by  the  executors,  14  Dec.  1543,  in  the  Consistory  Court 
of  Ely.  Alice  his  wife  survived  him ;  made  her  will,  "  sick  in 
body,"  Dec.  1545,  being  of  Ely,  widow.  She  desires  burial  with- 
in the  Trinity  church  of  Ely;  leaves  twelve  bullocks  on  her 
farm    at   Chettisham   between  her  sons  Edmund   Heynesworth 

*>  Chettisham  has  now  no  parish  registers  so  early  as  1 600.

and  Thomas  Hoclilow;  a  mattrass  to  the  above  Robert  Gill,  her 
servant,  and  brass-pots,  pans,  platters,  one  feather-bed,  one  mat- 
trass,  three  pair  of  sheets  and  one  coverlet  to  Jone  Basset.  To 
the  "  Charnell,"  a  small  legacy ;  and  an  altar  cloth,  surplice, 
and  two  towels,  to  Trinity  church,  Ely.  She  appoints  Edmund 
Heynesworth  executor,  and  residuary  legatee,  and  Thomas  Hodi- 
low,  her  son,  supervisor  ;  and  speaks  of  herself  and  two  children 
having  then  each  a  separate  establishment.  She  died  soon 
after,  and  her  will  was  proved  in  the  Consistory  Court  of  Ely, 
12  Feb.  1545-6.     By  her,  Robert  Hodilow  had  two  children, 

I.  Thomas  Hodilow,  his  heir. 

II.  Alice  Hodilow,  who  was  married  before  1540  v.  p.  to  one 
Edmund  Heynesworth  ("  Gules,  a  fret  ermine.")  And  both 
of  them  were  alive  in  1545. 

Thomas  Hodilow,  of  Chettisham  and  Ely,  afterwards  of 
Cambridge,  only  son  and  heir,  was  born  in  or  before  1522, 
being  of  age  1543,  though  then  unmarried.  This  gentleman 
seems  to  have  lived  at  Chettisham  in  1545,  but  afterwards  re- 
moved to  Cambridge,  where  he  carried  on  a  most  extensive 
brewing  business,  during  the  early  part  of  Elizabeth's  reign, 
which  vocation  was  at  that  time  reputed  one  of  high  respecta- 
bility ;  t'  and  sure  it  is,  that  Thomas  Hodilow  maintained  a  most 
sumptuous  establishment  in  Castle  End,  Cambridge,  during  the 
latter  part  of  his  life.  He  was  twice  married  :  first,  to  Joan,  ^ 
daughter  of  John  Dale,  of  Bury  St.  Edmund's,  in  Suffolk ;  un- 
doubtedly, however,  a  member  of  the  Dale  family  of  Essex  and 
Northamptonshire,  which  bore  "  Gules,  on  a  mount  vert  a  swan 
argent,  chained,  collared,  and  membered  or."  By  this  lady,  who 
was  living  in  1555  (1st  and  2nd  Ph.  &  Mary),  he  had  issue 
three  sons  and  six  daughters,  of  all  of  whom  presently.  He 
married,  secondly,  Mary,  daughter  of ,  supposed,  how- 
ever, to  have  been  widow  of  Mr.  Mellis,  of  Maldon,  in  Essex, 
and  mother  of  the  wife  of  Joseph  Hodilow,  presently  mentioned. 
By  her,  however,  he  is  not  recorded  to  have  had  any  issue.  She 
was  his  wife  in  1585,  and  1594.  Thomas  Hodilow  made  his 
will,  styling  himself  of  Cambridge,  brewer,   Uth  April,  36ih 

^  Robert  Cromwell,  of  Huntingdon,  father  of  Oliver  the  Protector,  and  eon  of 
Sir  Henry  Cromwell,  Knt.,  was  a  brewer  at  Huntingdon.  Many  other  instances 
might  be  adduced.

Eliz.  (1594)  ;  and  a  prodigious  will  it  is  for  that  period,  being 
nearly  one  hundred  folios  in  length.     The   testator's  first  and 
great  object  was  to  provide  amply  for   INIary   his   second   wife, 
leaving  her   lands,   houses,   rents,   money,    furniture,   the  most 
costly  plate,  trinkets,  and,   in  fact,   articles  of  every  description, 
and  without  number.     He  states  that  he  then   dwelt  in  Castle 
End,  in  the  town  of  Cambridge,  and  clearly  possessed  a  splendid 
establishment.     He  speaks  of  lands  he  held  by  lease  of  Caius 
College  and  Clare  Hall,  as  well  as  divers  houses  of  his  own  (free- 
hold) in  Cambridge ;  amongst  others,  his  house  next  the  "  Dol- 
phin Inn,"  which  he  leaves  to  Mary  his  wife.     He  leaves  pecu- 
niary legacies  to  his  children,  and  to  certain  of  his  grandchildren, 
to  the  poor  of  Cambridge  and  die  parishes  of  St.  Mary  and 
Trinity  at  Ely,  and  to  divers  friends,  servants,  and  dependents. 
To  Mr.  Chaderton,   preacher  of  St.   Clement's  f  church,  40^. 
yearly,  so  long  as  he  continues  preacher  thereof;  5/.  to  his  friend 
John  Bettis,  LL.D.     He  leaves  to  Abraham,  son  of  Mary  his 
wife,  and  Katharine,  wife  of  the  said  Abraham,     He  leaves  the 
guardianship  of  his  grandson,   William   Hodilow,  with  all  his 
estate,  to  Mary,  his  wife,  and  directs  that  no  one  interfere  with  her 
in   the   management  thereof.     He  appoints  Thomas,  his  son, 
executor,    under  certain  restrictions ;    which,  if  unattended  to, 
Mary,  his  (testator's)  wife,  was  to  be  executrix ;  and  if  she  took 
not  the  executorship  upon  her,  his  beloved  son  in  law,  Jeremy 
Chace,  was  to  be  executor.     He  appoints  his  friend  John  Bettis, 
LL.D.  supervisor.     Testator  made  an  unimportant  codicil  26tli 
April,   37th  Eliz.   (1595),   chiefly  benefiting   Mary,   his  second 
wife,  with  a  few  legacies  to  friends ;  and  very  soon  after,  "  Tho- 
mas Hodilow,  the  wealthy  brewer  of  Cambridge,"  who  from  the 
contents  of  his  will  appears  to  have  been  a  curious  old  gentle- 
man, died,  having  attained  a    fine  old  age,  and  outlived   both 
his  eldest  and  youngest  sons.     Thomas,   his  second   son,  proved 
his  long  will  in  the  Prerogative   Court  of  Canterbury  22  Dec. 
1595 ;  and  it  may  be  remarked,   that  an  abstract  of  it   (though 
a  very  concise  one)   is   also  to  be  met  with  in  Harl.  MS.  7030, 
fol.  335,  for  it  was  also  registered  in  the  University   Court  of 
Cambridge.     By  Joane  Dale,  Thomas  Hodilow  had  issue,

fully for  record  of  the  family.   Vide  }>ust. 


I.  Edmund  Hodilow,  his  lieir  apparent ;  who,  though 
he  predeceased  his  father,  yet,  as  he  was  a  gendenian  of  con- 
sequence, and  continued  the  family  pedigree,  sliall  be  treated 
of  at  large  hereafter. 

II.  1'honias  Hodilow,  of  London,  citizen  and  Salter,  after- 
wards of  Burton  Latimer,  in  Northamptonshire,  Esq.  This 
gentleman  was  living  in  1585,  1586,  and  1589;  and  in  1595 
proved  his  father's  will.  In  1603  (1st  Jac.  I.)  he  had  a  Chan- 
cery suit  with  John  Davies  a  haberdasher  of  London ;  {his 
bill  being  filed  12  May  1603,  Davies'  answer  sworn  24  May 
1603,  but  the  subject  is  unimportant;)  but  had  retired  from 
business  to  reside  at  Burton  Latimer,  in  Northamptonshire, 
before  1615.     Before   1595   he  married  Katharine,   daughter 

of  Earle,  of  Boston,  in  Lincolnshire,  Esq.  relict  of 

Lodge.  Earle  of  Boston  bore,  "  Gules,  an  annulet  or,  between 
three  escallops  argent,  all  within  a  bordure  engrailed  of  the 
last ;  "  and  was  a  branch  of  the  old  house  of  Earle  or  Erie  of 
Dorsetshire,  it  seems;  another  branch  of  which  was  seated  at 
Craglethorpe  in  Lincolnshire,  and  Topsfield  in  Essex,  and 
after  obtaining  a  new  grant  of  arms  in  1558,  was  raised  to 
the  rank  of  Baronet  in  1629,  though  now  extinct.  By  Katha- 
rine Earle,  Thomas  Hodilow  had  an  only  daughter  and  heiress, 

I.  Sarah  Hodilow,  who,  before  1615,  became  the  first  wife 
of  that  "  great  loyalist  and  true  son  of  the  Church,"  Dr.  John 
Owen,  S.T.D.,  Lord  Bishop  of  St.  Asaph's,  in  Wales.  This 
"  loyal  prelate  and  modest  man,"  says  Fuller,  "  who  would 
not  own  the  worth  he  had  in  himself,"  was  eldest  son  of  the 
Rev.  Owen  Owen,  "  the  worthy  "  and  "grave"  minister  of 
Burton  Latimer,  co.  Northampton,  and  Archdeacon  of 
Anglesey,  in  Wales,  by  Jane,  his  second  wife,  the  daughter  of 
Robert  GriffiU),  Esq.  Constable  of  Carnarvon;  and  which 
Owen  Owen  was  uncle  of  Sir  John  Owen,  of  Clenneney,  Knt. 
Colonel  in  the  Army,  and  Vice- Admiral  of  North  Wales,  to 
whose  memory  there  is  a  splendid  monument  in  Penmorva 
church,  CO.  Carnarvon,  (see  Burke's  Commoners,  vol.  i,  p. 
84),  and  second  son  of  Owen  ap  Robert,  of  Bodsilen,  in  Car- 
narvonshire, by  Ankaret  his  wife,  daughter  and  coheir  of 
David  ap  William,  of  the  family  of  Williams  of  Cych- 
Willan,  and  was  in  fact,  without  ascending  to  the  fabulous 
and  remote  generations  of  Welsh  pedigrees,  well  connected 


on  all  sides;  though  his  family  genealogy  did  derive  him  from 
the  chief  of  one  of  tiie  fifteen  tribes  of  North  Wales.  Bishop 
Owen  was  also,  moreover,  first  cousin  maternally  of  the  re- 
nowned Humphry  Henchman,  Bishop  of  London,  and  Priw 
Councillor  to  Ciiarles  U. ;  of  whom  notice  will  hereafter  be 
made,  Bishop  Heachman's  sister  having  married  Arthur 
Hodilow,  first  cousin  to  Sarah  Hodilow,  Bishop  Owen's  wife. 
Dr.  John  Owen,  who  was  born  at  Burton  Latimer,  and  was, 
like  his  father,  Rector  thereof,  had  received  his  education  at 
Jesus  College,  Cambridge,  of  whicii,  before  his  marriage,  he 
was  a  fellow,  and  was  promoted  to  the  see  of  St.  Asaph's,  Sep- 
tember 1629,  by  the  patronage  of  Laud,  then  Bishop  of  Lon- 
don ;  who  had  ever  been  one  of  his  best  friends ;  but,  as 
Fuller  says,  "  he  (Owen)  deserved  a  far  better  preferment." 
Thereupon  Dr.  Owen  returned  to  his  native  country,  and 
lived  at  his  palace  at  Perthkinsey  till  his  death,  highly  re- 
spected and  beloved  in  his  diocese.  He  outlived  his  vote  in 
Parliament,  however,  and  survived  to  see  every  species  of  con- 
tempt cast  upon  his  order;  all  which  he  bore  with  his  habi- 
tual tranquillity  and  amiability.  He  died  at  Perthkinsey,  loth 
Oct.  1651  ;  and  his  funeral  was  solemnized  with  heraldic 
pomp,  in  St.  Asaph's  cathedral,  21st  Oct.  1651.  Bishop 
Owen  sealed  with  an  oval,  containing  his  paternal  coat  im- 
paled with  that  of  his  see,  as  appears  by  an  impression  of  it  in 
wax  in  Harl.  MS.  1974.  His  paternal  arms  were,  "  Gules,  a 
chevron  between  three  lions  rampant  or;"  but  he  was  also 
entitled  to  quarter  \\"illiaius  of  Cych-Willen,  "  Gules,  a 
chevron  ermine  between  three  men's  heads  couped  at  the  neck, 
in  profile,  proper,  hair  and  beard  sable.  He  liad  married^ 
secondly,  EUzabeth,  daughter  of Vernon,  of  Cambridge- 
shire, widow  of Gray,  (and  by  her  had  a  daughter  Eli- 
zabeth, living  1651  ;)  and  thirdly,  Ellen,  daughter  of  Robert 
Wynne,  of  Conway,  in  Wales,  Esq.  and  by  her  had  issue 
who  died  young,  or  s.  p.  But  his  only  issue,  of  whom  further 
record  is  preserved,  were  by  the  heiress  of  Hodilow,  his  first 
wife,  viz. 

1.  Robert  Owen,  of  Wepper,  or  Weppra,  co.  Flint, 
LL.B.  who  was  appointed  Chancellor  of  the  diocese  of  St. 
Asaph  after  the  Restoration  in  1660;  but  died  soon  after, 
viz.  on    the   29th   July    ]661  ;    having   married    Frances,

daughter  of  Edwnrcl  Pennant,  Esq.  of  Bagylt,  in  Wales, 
("  Per  bend  sinister  ermine  and  ermines,  a  lion  rampant 
or,")  who  surviving  liim,  married,  secondly,  John  Mostyn, 
Esq.  second  son  of  John  Moystyn,  Esq.  of  Talacre,  and 
brother  of  Sir  Edward  Mostyn,  Bart,  (same  arms  as  Pen- 
nant) ;  by  which  Frances,  the  said  Robert  Owen  left 

I.  Elizabeth  Owen,  his  sole  heiress,  and  heiress  also 
of  her  great-grandfather,  Thomas  Hodilow,  junior.  This 
lady  was  ajt.  two  years  and  a  half  in  1661,  at  her 
father's  death,  and  v/edded,  at  the  age  of  twenty,  in  1679, 
WilHam  Fitzherbert,  Esq.  lord  of  Norbury,  in  Derby- 
shire, and  Swinnerton,  in  Staflbrdshii-e,  the  head  of  one 
of  the  very  first  families  in  the  kingdom;  who  had,  in 
fact,  owned  Norbury  from  the  period  of  the  Conquest, 
and  bore  for  arms,  "  Argent,  a  chief  vairee  or  and 
gules,  a  bend  sable."  By  him  she  had,  with  younger 

I.  Thomas  Fitzherbert,    Lsq.  lord  of  Norbury  and 
Swinnerton,  who  marrying  Constance,  daughter  of  Sir 
George   Southcote,  Bart,  was   ancestor  of  the  present 
Thomas  Fitzherbert,  Esq.  of  Norbury  and  Swinnerton; 
whose  pedigree  may  be  seen  in  Burke's  Commoners, 
vol.  i.  79. 
II.  Mary  Owen  (daughter  of  the  Bishop),  born  about  1614, 
who  became  the  wife  of  Dr.  William  Griffith,  of  New  Coll. 
Oxon.    LL.D.,    one   of  the  Masters  of  the    High    Court  of 
Chancei'v,    and    Chancellor  of  St.  Asaph's,    brother  of  Dr. 
George  Griffith,  who  became  Bishop  of  St.  Asaph's  after  the 
death   of  Dr.  John  Owen,  and  first  son  of  Robert  Griffith,  of 
Caveglwyd,   in   Llanfaethlen,   in  Anglesey,  by  Anne  his  wife, 
daughter  of  Owen  ap  Hugh,  of  Guenynoe,  in  the  same  county. 
Dr.  William  Griffith  was   also  Vicar  General  and  Chancellor 
of  the  diocese  of  Bangor,  and  died,  having  enjoyed  his  different 
offices  but  a  few  years,  17  Oct.  1648,  and  was  buried  in  Llan- 
faethlen church.     Mary  Owen,  his  wife,  predeceased  him   9th 
April  1645,  act.  31,  having  borne  him  six  children,  of  whom 
five  were  alive  in  1645.     Of  them,  John  Griffith,  of  Llan- 
faethlen, the  eldest,  was  High  Sheriff' of  Anglesey  in  1690. 




III.  Joseph  Hodilow,  of  Cambridge,  gent,  who  married  Anne, 
daughter  of  Abraham  Mellis,  or  INIellowes,  of  JMaldon,  in 
Essex,  sister  of  another  Abraham  Mellis,  gent. ;  and  had  bv  her 
who  predeceased  him,  an  only  son,  of  whom  presently.  Joseph 
Hodilow  made  his  will  30  July,  2rth  Eliz.  (1585),  and  left 
many  bequests  to  his  brothers  in  law  and  to  his  sisters,  to  his 
only  son  \V^illiam,  and  to  his  brother  Thomas  Hodilow  ;  to  his 
father  Thomas  Hodilow,  and  to  Mary  his  mother  in  law,  wife 
of  the  said  Thomas  his  father.  The  testator  was  evidently  a 
gentleman  of  considerable  property  about  Cambridge,  and  men- 
tions having  purchased  lands  at  Impington,  near  that  place  ;  and 
leaves  charitable  legacies  to  that  parish,  and  to  the  parishes  of 
St.  Peter,  St.  Giles,  and  St.  Clement,  s  in  Cambridge.  He 
leaves  to  his  sisters  a  great  many  dresses,  girdles,  stomachers, 
trinkets,  &;c.  belonging  to  his  late  wife  ;  mentioning  her  "  first 
best  ring,"  her  "second  best  ring,"  and  her  "  third  best  ring," 
&c.  He  moreover  seems  to  have  been  quite  a  fashionable  young 
man  of  his  time,  for  he  mentions  his  "  lute,"  his  "  rapier,"  and 
his  "  dagger ;  "  all  of  which  he  bequeaths  to  one  or  other  of  his 
brothers  in  law.  He  speaks  of  his  cousins,  John  Lynge  and 
John  Webb,  of  Risbye,  and  appoints  his  father,  ]\Ir,  Thomas 
Hodilow,  and  Mary  his  wife,  executors,  and  constitutes  them 
guardians  of  his  son  William.  He  also  leaves  to  his  own  and 
to  his  father's  servants,  and  to  the  old  women  of  Mary  his  mo- 
ther in  law.  He  made  a  dateless  codicil,  making  bequests  to  his 
brother  in  law  Abraham  INlellis,  and  to  a  servant  of  his  cousin 
Hodilow  of  Impington.  Testator  died  soon  after,  his  will  being 
proved  19th  July  1586,  in  the  Prerogative  Couit  of  Canterbury, 
by  the  executors.  By  Anne  Mellis  he  left  an  only  son  and 

I.  William  Hodilow,  a  minor  in  1585  and  1595,  who  was 
brought  up  at  Cambridge  by  his  grandfather,  Thomas  Hodi- 
low, and  subsequently  by  Mary  his  widow,  but  afterwards 
settled  at  Hailweston,  in  Huntingdonshire,  where  he  possessed 
property,  part  of  which  is  still  known  as  "  Hodilow^s  Close." 
Here,  during  the  seventeenth  century,   he  for  long  lived  in

resident  at  Cambridge,  the  registries  of  all  of  them  have  been  searched  for  record  of 
the  family ;  but  unfortunately,  in  each  case,  quite  unsuccessfully  ;  which  is  some- 
what unaccountable.

dilow's  Close,  but  since  demolishetl;  and  married  Dorothy, 
widow  of  Richard  Weaver,  Esq.  of  Ilailweston,  in  Hunting- 
donshire. By  licr,  however,  though  she  had  divers  children 
by  Mr.  Weaver,  he  had  no  issue ;  and  dying  at  a  very  ad- 
vanced age,  his  burial  occurs  in  Hailweston  parish  register, 
5th  April  1G7G,  as  "  William  Hodilow,  gent."  Dorothy  liis 
wife  survived  him,  and  made  her  will  30  January  1679,  men- 
tioning her  daughter  Beatrice  Jackson,  her  grandchildren 
John  and  Dorothy  Jackson,  her  son  William  Weaver,  and 
her  grandchild  Richard  Weaver,  appointing  her  son  in  law, 
John  Jackson,  I'  his  guardian,  and  constituting  her  son,  Wil- 
liam Weaver,  her  executor.  She  leaves  a  legacy  to  the  poor 
of  Hailweston  ;  and  a  variety  of  furniture  and  household  goods, 
and  a  great  deal  of  plate^  (specifying  the  "  silver  spoons  with 
nobs  at  the  ends,")  to  her  grandchildren.  She  died  soon 
after,  and  was  buried  at  Hailweston  10th  Oct.  1680.  Her 
will  was  proved  in  the  Prerogative  Court  of  Canterbury,  27th 
January  1680-1. 

I.  (?  Elizabeth ')  Hodilow,  who,  before  1585,  was  mar- 
ried to  the  Rev.  Anthony  Kingsmill,  A.M.  Vicar  of  Milton 
next  Sittingbourne,  in  Kent,  who  was  pi'esented  to  that  living, 
8th  Sept.  1585,  by  the  Dean  and  Chapter  of  Canterbury,  and 
which  he  held  till   his  death   in   1616.     This  oentleman  was  no 


doubt  descended  from  a  common  ancestor  with  the  ancient  house 
of  Kingsmill  in  the  adjoining  county  of  Hants,  who  were  created 
Baronets  in  1800,  and  bore  for  arms,  ''•  Argent,  crusily  fitchee 
sable,  a  chevron  ermine  between  three  fers  de  moline  sable,  a 
chief  ermines."  The  above  marriage  produced,  with  four  younger 
children,  baptized  at  Milton  between  1589  and  1604,  a  son, 

L  Anthony  Kingsmill,  who  has  a  legacy  in  the  will  of  his 

uncle  Joseph  Hodilow  1585. 

H.  Alice  Hodilow,  married  before  1585  to  the  Rev.  Robert 
Thexton,  Clerk,  A.B.  of  Elendon  hall,  Cambridge,  Rector  of 
Trunch,  in  Norfolk,  (son  of  the  Rev,  Lancelot  Thexton,  A.M., 

•>  This  Jolm  Jackson,  who  had  married  her  daughter  Beatrice  Weaver,  resided 
at  St.  Neot's  ;  and  recorded  his  pedigree  and  arms  at  the  Huntingdonshire  Visita- 
tion 1G84. 

'  Vincent  says  "  Catharine;  "  but  he  is  known  to  be  wrong.  Milton  parish 
register  has  been  searched  for  a  casual  mention  of  her,  but  unsuccessfully. 


S.T.B.  Ileclor  of  Triinch  fioni  15T2  to  1588,  and  a  Prebendary 
of  Norwich,  wlio  had  been  chaplain  to  King  Edward  VI.,  and 
who  dying,  Feb.  1588-9,  was  buried  in  'IVunch  churcii,  where 
a  monumental  inscription,  with  his  arms  of,  "  Quarterly,  1st  and 
4th,  Argent,  a  cross  between  four  lion's  heads  erased  gules;  and 
2nd  and  3rd,  Ermine,  fretty  azure,"  remains  to  his  memory; 
and  descended  from  an  old  house  of  Churchmen),  by  whom  she 
had  divers  children,  and  dying,  November  1615,  was  interred  at 
Trunch.  And  it  is  a  curious  fact,  that,  though  the  advowson 
of  Trunch  was  not  in  the  Thexton  family,  they  were  neverthe- 
less successively  rectors  of  IVunch  for  nearly  a  hundred  and  fifty 
years,  without  any  break  or  intermission ;  viz.  from  1572  to 
1709.  The  family  was  one  of  the  highest  respectability.'' 

^  The  following  notes  on  the  Thexton  family  may  not  be  altogether  too  unini- 
portant  to  print,  though  there  is  no  copious  pedigree  in  existence ;  at  least,  none 
has  occurred  to  tlie  writer. 

The  Rev.  Thomas  Thexton,  or  Thaxton,  evidently  one  of  the  early  "  Re- 
formers," was  presented  to  the  Rectory  of  Great  Bircham,  in  Norfolk,  by  King 
Henry  VIII.  A.  D.  1543,  and  was  succeeded  there,  in  1551,  by  another  of  his 
name  (no  doubt  his  son), 

The  Rev.  Lancelot  Thexton,  A.M.,  S.T.B.,  who,  after  becoming  Rector 
of  Great  Bircham  1551,  by  presentation  of  King  Edward  VI.  to  whom  he  was 
chaplain,  was  promoted,  in  1552,  being  then  A.M.,  by  Elizabeth,  widow  of  Sir 
Henry  Parker,  of  Erwarton  in  Sufifolk,  (the  daughter  and  heir  of  Sir  Philip  Cal- 
thorpe,)  to  the  Rectory  of  Anmere,  in  Norfolk.  He  was  also  Rector  of  Hartest 
and  Boxted,  in  Suffolk  ;  and  in  1572,  Queen  Elizabeth  made  him  Rector  of  Trunch, 
in  Norfolk,  where  he  then  settled,  and  subsequently  resided  till  he  died,  being  then 
S.T.B.  On  the  8th  Feb.  157G-7,  he  was  installed  first  Prebendary  of  Norwich 
Cathedral;  and  dying  25th  Feb.  1588-9,  was  buried  28th  Feb.  in  his  church  of 
Trunch,  where  a  monumental  inscription,  with  his  arms,  as  above  described,  re- 
main to  his  memory.     The  inscription  is  very  concise,  and  runs  thus  : 

"  Lancelotus  Thexton,  Capellanus  Regis  Edw.  VI.  sacrse  theologite  bacca- 
laureus,  et  rector  de  Trunch,  obt.  25°  Febr.  1588." 

It  seems  probable  that  as  "  Ermine,  fretty  azure  "  was  the  old  coat  of  Thexton, 
his  first  and  fourth  quarterings  of  "Argent,  a  cross  between  four  lion's  heads  erased 
gules,"  was  an  augmentation  allusive  to  his  being  chaplain  to  royalty. 

To  Lancelot  succeeded, 

The  Rev.  Robert  Thexton,  A.B.  of  Elendon  hall,  Camb.  in  1578;  whoevi- 
dently  became  acquainted  with  Alice  Hodilow  through  being  a  Cambridge  student. 
He  had  married  Alice  Hodilow  before  1585,  and  seems  to  have  resided  at  Cambridge 
till  his  father  died.  We  find  him  living  there  in  the  summer  of  1589  ;  but  his  fa- 
ther deceasing  the  following  February,  he  being  appointed  his  successor  in  the  Rec- 
tory of  Trunch,  immediately  settled  there,  and  held  the  Rectory  till  1619,  when  he 
resigned  it  in  favour  of  his  son  Robert,  who  was  appointed  to  it  by  the  Assigns  of 
the  Master,  &c.  of  Catharine  Hall,  Cambridge.    Alice  dying,  was  buried  at  Trunch, 

38  THE    FAMILY    OF    IIODILOW,    Of 

III.  Mercy  Hodilow,  married,  in  or  before  1585,  to  Jeremy 
Cliace,  Esq.  mayor,  alderman,  and  draper  of  Cambridge,  and  ol 
Millon,  ill  Bedfordshire,  where  he  owned  an  estate  (whose  father 
or  uncle,  John  Chace,  was  mayor  of  Cambridge  in  1577)  ;  the 
arms  of  whose  family  were,  "  Gules,  four  crosses  pattce  argent, 
on  a  canton  or  a  lion  passant  azure."  This  Jeremy  Chace  was 
a  man  remarkable  for  his  virtues  and  prudence ;  and  not  only 
was  he  most  beloved  by  his  father  in  law,  Thomas  Hodilow  (who 
calls  him  in  his  will  his  "  well-beloved  son  in  law");  but  even  the 
Chancellor  Sir  Robert  Cecil,  in  a  letter  to  the  corporation  of 
Cambridge,  dated  at  the  "  Courte  at  Richmond  13th  Oct.  1601," 
writes  with  great  respect  of  him,  speaking  of  his  "  temperate 
carriage,"  Sec.  The  said  Jeremy  Chace  was  mayor  of  Cambridge 
in  1600  and  1607,  and  made  his  will,  styling  himself '*  Alderman 
of  Cambridge,"  2nd  Oct.  1626.  He  mentions  his  lands  in  Mil- 
ton, CO.  Bedford,  and  his  several  children  ;  and  dying  soon  after, 
it  was  proved  in  the  Prerogative  Court  of  Canterbury  by  Mercy 
his  wife,  the  executrix;  who  surviving,  made  her  will,  styling 
herself  of  London,  widow,  (probably  resident  with  the  Coles,) 
and  in  good  heakh,  27th  July  1629,  appoints  her  son  in  law 

29th  Nov.  1615  ;  Robert,  her   husband,  on  the  22nd  Jan.  1G24.     They  appear  to 
have  had  issue, 

I.  Rev.  RoBKRT  Thexton.  who  succeeded  his  father  at  Trunch. 

II.  Thomas  Thexton,  baptized  at  Trunch,  30  Aug.  1590. 

I.  Hannah  Thexton,  baptized  at  Trunch,  4  Nov.  1593. 

II.  Agnes  Thexton,  baptized  there,  4  March  1598. 

The  Rev.  Robert  Thexton,  being  born  before  his  father  settled  at  Trunch, 
was  probably  baptized  at  Cambridge.  He  was  presented  to  the  said  Rectory  of 
Trunch  in  1G19  by  the  Assigns  of  the  Master,  «Scc.  of  Catharine  Hall,  Cambridge, 
and  died  about  16G0.     His  successor  (and  no  doubt  his  son)  was  another 

Rev.  Robert  Thexton,  who,  like  his  progenitors,  was  Rector  of  Trunch* 
being  presented  thither  in  1660  on  the  death  of  the  last  incumbent.  He  had  been 
of  Catharine  Hall,  Cambridge,  and  took  his  A. B.  degree  in  1642.  He  remained 
incumbent  of  Trunch  down  to  1709  :  thus  the  family  had  filled  that  living  for  13? 
years.     He  appears  to  have  had  issue, 

I.  Andrew  Thexton. 

II.  Robert  Thexton  of  Pet.  Coll.  Camb.  who  took  his  A.B.  degree  1686. 

III.  Edward  Thexton,  of  Norwich,  who  died  tet.  70,  in  1740,  and  was  buried 
in  St.  Laurence's  church,  Norwich  ;  where  Sarah,  his  widow,  dying  in  1743,  at  the 
age  of  82,  was  likewise  interred. 

Andrew  Thexton  was,  like  his  predecessors,  a  student  and  graduate  of  Cath. 
Hall,  Camb.  and  took  his  A.B.  degree  1678,  and  that  of  A.M.  1682. 

Robert  Thexton,  of  Caius  Coll.  Camb.  A.B.  1724,  was  not  improbably  the 
Bon  of  him,  or  of  Robert  of  1686. 


George  Cole,  executor;  ami  made  a  codicil  4tli  Sept.  1629. 
She  died  very  soon  after,  in  Sept.  1G29,  as  it  was  proved  in  the 
Prerogative  Court  of  Canterbury  11th  Sept.  1629  by  the  exe- 
cutor ;  to  whom,  and  his  wife,  administration,  de  bonis  7ion,  of 
the  will  of  Jeremy  Ciiace  was  granted  at  the  same  time.  The 
said  Mercy  Hodilow,  by  Jeremy  Chace,  had  three  sons  and  two 

1.  John  Chace  ;i  2.  Thomas  Chace;  3.  Jeremy  Chace;  all 
living  1626. 

1.  Mercy  Chace,  married  v.  p.  to  — —  Savage;  by  whom 
she  had  issue,  1626. 

2.  Anne  Chace,  wife  of  George  Cole,  of  London,  gent. 
1626  and  1629. 

IV.  Anne '"  Hodilow,  married  to  the  Rev.  Christopher  Pas- 
ley,  Paslew,  or  Pashley,  A.^I.  of  Linksteed,  in  Kent,  Vicar  of 
Linksteed  and  Tenham,  in  that  county,  and  descended  from  an 
ancient  and  noble  Kentish  familj'.  "  Robert  de  Pasley,  or  Pas- 
lew,  was  Treasurer  of  England,  with  others,  temp.  Henry  HI. ; 
and  the  family  were  benefactors  to  Darsington  Priory ;  and  their 
arms,  a  lion  rampant  crowned,  are  on  the  roof  of  the  cloisters  at 
Canterbury,"  says  Hasted,  This  Christopher  Pasley,  like  his 
brother  in  law,  Robert  Thexton,  was  a  student  and  graduate  of 
Elendon  hall,  Cambridge,  and  took  his  A.B.  degree  like  him 
in  1572;  and  having  taken  his  A.M.  degree,  was  presented,  28 
April  1589,  by  the  Archdeacon  of  Canterbury,  to  the  vicarage 
of  Linksteed;  and  on  the  18tii  Dec.  1602,  had  the  neiglibouring 
vicarage  of  Tenham  conferred  upon  him  by  the  same  patron- 
age ;  and  he  held  both  the  remainder  of  his  life ;  but  resided  at 
Linksteed  till  his  death  ;  which  occurred  in  1612.  He  appears 
to  have  left  issue,  by  his  wife  Hodilow  ;  and  persons,  no  doubt 
his  posterity,  received  university  educations  at  Cambridge  for 
half  a  century  after  his  decease.  The  arms  of  his  ancient  family 
were,   "  Purpure,  a  lion  rampant  or,  crowned  argent."  "

name,  there  is  hardly  a  corroboration  that  it  was  Anne.  Linsted  has  no  register 
anterior  to  16.53. 

°  Christopher  Pasley,  (no  doubt  a  son  of  the  above  marriage,)  was  a  gra» 
duate,  and  took  his  A.B.  degree,  at  Trinity  Coll.  Camb.  1615  ;  and  the  will  of  a 
Thomas  Pasley,  of  Kent,  was  proved  in  C.  P.  C.  1638.  While  another  CHRisTOi

40  THE    FAMILY    OF    HODILOW,    OF 

V.  Catharine o  Ilodilow,  niarricd,  beforo  1585,  lo  a  Mr. 
James  Broniwell,  of  the  Isle  of  Thanet,  in  Kent;  but  further 
information  of  whom  has  been  searciied  for  in  vain. 

VI.  (?  Margaret  P)    Ilodilow,   wiio   was  married   before 

1594  to  Mr.  John  Prance,  or  Praunce,  of  Marche,  in  the  Isle  of 
Ely,  by  whom  she  had  issue.  This  gentleman  was  a  member  of 
the  family  (and  probably  a  son)  of  Miles  Praunce,  Esq.  mayor  of 
Cambridge  in  1569  and  1576,1  and  a  descendant  of  which  most 
respectable  house  was  Miles  Praunce,  a  citizen  and  goldsmith  of 
London,  goldsmith  to  her  Majesty  Catharine,  consort  of 
Charles  II.,  the  famous  witness  against  Hill,  Green,  and  Berry, 
in  the  Popish  Plot,  A.D.  1678.  (Vide  llapin's  Hist,  of  P:ngland, 
vol.  xi.  p.  508,  et  seq.)  But  it  is  said  the  family  enjoyed  a  high 
antiquity  in  Salop,  and  on  the  borders  of  Wales  (?  a  Welsh 
name),  before  their  location  in  Cambridgeshire.  And  there  are 
still  branches  of  it  in  existence. 

Edmund  Hodilow,  gent,  of  Kelvedon  and  Wilham,  in 
Essex,  described  by  Vincent  as  also  of  "  Wenham,  in  Suffolk," 
eldest  son  and  heir  apparent  of  Thomas  Ilodilow,  of  Cambridge, 
resided  at  those  places  (latterly,  however,  at  Kelvedon)  during 
his  flither's  lifetime,  whom  he  predeceased,  as  already  mentioned. 
This  gentleman  was  married  about  1572,  to  Barbara  Marche,  one 
of  the  seven  daiightei'S  of  Robert  Marche,  Esq.  of  Haddenham 
and  Ely  in  Cambridgeshire,  sister  of  Thomas  Marche,  Esq.  of 
Ely  (who  married  Anne  Steward,  one  of  the  maternal  aunts 
of  Oliver  Cromwell,  the  Protector  of  the  Commonwealth), 
and  of  Robert  March,  Esq.  of  Haddenham,  ancestor  of  the 
Marches  of  Haddenham,  now  extinct  in  the  male  line,  and  next 
sister  to  Mary,  wife  of  Richard  Drury,  Esq.  of  Reach,  in  Swaff'- 
ham  parish  in  Cambridgeshire,  (son  of  Thomas  Drury,  Esq.  of 
Talbot's  Hall,  in  Fincham,  co.  Norfolk,)  whose  grandson,  Francis 
Drury,  recorded  his  pedigree  at  the  Cambridgeshire  Visitation 
1619.  The  said  Barbara's  mother  was  Agnes,  daughter  of  John 
Castell,  of  Somersham,  in  Huntingdonshire,  whose  family  re- 
corded their  pedigree  and  arms  at  the  Visitation  of  Cambridge 

°  Vincent  says  "  Mary,"  but  Joseph  Hodilow's  will  proves  him  wrong. 

P  Vincent  says  "  Cecily,"  but  there  is  no  other  record  of  such  a  daughter  ;  and 
it  is  almost  certain  he  is  in  error. 

1  Robert  Prance,  another  member  of  this  family,  was  a  graduate  at  Cambridge, 
Wheatlie  hall,  temp.  Elizabeth,  and  took  his  A.B.  degree  in  1582.  He  was  pro- 
bably  brother  of  Joha  Praunce,  or  Prance,  above  mentioned. 


1619,  luiving  afterwards  settled  in  that  county;  \\\n\e  his  pater- 
nal relatives,  the  Marches,  were  of  first-rate  consequence  in 
Cambridgeshire,  and  recorded  their  pedigree  in  1575,  1619,  and 
1684-;  bearing  for  arms,  "Or,  three  pales  azure,  on  a  chief 
gules  three  talbot's  heads  erased  or;'^  and,  thougli  now  extinct, 
the  two  main  branches  of  the  f:miily  merged  as  follows : — March 
of  Ely  and  Stuntney  in  Norton  of  Rotlierfield,  in  Hants ; 
March  of  Haddenham  in  Wollaston  of  Loseley,  in  Leicester- 

After  his  marriage  Edmond  Hodilow  resided  continuously  at 
Kelvedon,  though  he  kept  up  his  house  at  Witham,  and  owned 
also  divers  lands  in  Essex ;  and  he  is  proved,  and  recorded,   to 
have  borne  his  arms  of  "  Gules,  a   cross  patee  fitchee  at  foot 
argent  within  a  bordure  engrailed  or,"  and  his  crest  of  *'  Out 
of  a  coronet  or,  a  dragon's  head  sable,  collared  or ; "  for,  when 
the  celebrated  Robert  Glover,  Somerset  Herald,  was  compiling 
his  Ordinary  of  Arms,  temp.  Elizabeth,  the  original  manuscript 
of  which  is   now  preserved  in   the  Heralds'  College,  and  highly   / 
valued,  he  entered  therein,  as  "  Hodilow  of  Essex,"  the  arms    <^ 
and  crest  as  above  described ;  which  not  only  gives  a  very  good  K 
title  to  the  bearings,   but  goes  further,  and  assigns  them  to  the    ,'■ 
family  on  prescriptive  right,   as  they  never  obtained  a  grant  of 
either  from  the  Heralds'  College ;  and  as  they  continued  to  use 
them  down  to  1698,  despite  the  severe  ordinances  of  the  Heralds 
then  in  force,  there  can  be  no   doubt  they  were  borne  with   a 
good  and  sufficient  title ;  and  it  is  by  no  means  improbable  that 
they  were  brought  over  from  Holland. 

Edmond  Hodilow,  however,  did  not  enjoy  a  long  life  :  for 
"  being  sicke,"  he  made  his  will,  styling  himself  of  Kelvedon,  in 
Essex,  "gentleman,"  (an  addition  infinitely  of  greater  dignity 
in  those  days  than  "Esquire"  of  our  times,)  16th  December, 
29th  Eliz.  (1586).  He  leaves  the  enjoyment  of  his  lands  to 
Barbara  his  wife,  during  the  minority  of  his  two  sons,  to  pay  his 
legacies,  perform  his  will,  and  bring  up  his  children ;  and  he 
shows  himself  to  have  been  a  good  man,  for  he  directs  that,  if  she 
marry  again,  he  that  she  marries  be  bound  in  the  sum  of  1,000/. 
before  marriage  to  his  father,  if  living,  and  if  dead,  to  his  brother 
Thomas  Hodilow,  "to  bring  up  my  children,"  says  he,  '^  in  "the 
feare  of  God  and  in  good  Icarninge."  He  leaves  to  his  father 
10/.  per  annum  for  life,  chargeable  on  all  his  lands,  in  considera-

sires burial  in  Kelvedon  church,  leaving  to  the  repairs  thereof, 
and  of  the  "  well "  in  it;  as  well  as  two  legacies  to  the  Rev.  Mr. 
Simpson,  Vicar  of  Kelvedon,  one  for  writing  his  will  for  him, 
and  another  to  preach  certain  sermons  after  his  death.  He  leaves 
to  his  children,  as  hereafter  mentioned,  and  to  each  of  his  sisters, 
and  his  brod)er  Thomas,  a  mourning  ring;  and  to  his  father,  one 
of  superior  workmanship.  He  makes  bequests  to  divers  friends, 
dependents,  poor  persons,  and  servants ;  and  appoints  Barbara, 
his  wife,  executrix,  and  Thomas  Hodilow,  his  brother,  overseer ; 
and  dying  a  day  or  two  afterwards,  (probably  aged  not  more 
than  40,)  his  funeral  was  solemnized  in  Kelvedon  church,  22 
Dec.  158G.  r  Barbara,  his  wife,  survived  him,  and  proved  his 
will  in  the  Prerogative  Court  of  Canterbury  27  June  1587;  and 
it  is  proper  to  observe  that,  thirty-three  years  afterwards,  an 
administration  de  bonis  non  was  granted,  by  the  same  Court,  3rd 
July  1620,  to  Brampton  Gurdon,  Esq.  of  Ashlington,  in  Suffolk; 
though,  unless  he  happened  to  have  married  a  daughter  of  Ed- 
mond  Hodilow,  it  is  not  known  how  his  concern  with  the  flimily 

After  Edmond  Hodilow's  death,  Barbara,  his  widow,  returned 
with  their  young  flimily  into  Cambridgeshire,  and  lived  her  few 
remaining  years  at  Cambridge,  but  only  survived  her  husband  a 
short  time.  She  made  her  will  there,  "  being  sicke,"  (her  bro- 
ther in  law,  the  Rev.  Robert  Thexton,  attests  it,  attending  her 
doubtless,  in  a  spiritual  capacity,)  and  in  sure  hopes  of  salvation, 
6vc.  styling  herself  "  of  Cambridge,  widow,"  21st  Sept.  1589; 
appoints  her  brother  in  law  Mr.  Thomas  Hodilow,  and  her  bro- 
ther Mr.  William  Marche,  executors.  She  speaks  of  her  chil- 
dren, all  then  minors,  with  great  affection.  She  died  very  soon 
after,  for  her  will  was  proved,  May  1590,  in  the  Prerogative 
Court  of  Canterbury,  by  Thomas  Redman,  notary  public,  pro- 
curator of  Thomas  Hodilow,  one  of  the  executors.  By  her  Ed- 
mond Hodilow  had  issue  three  sons  and  four  daughters, 

I.  Arthur  Hodilow,  of  whom  hereafter,  as   heir  to  his 

father,  and  grandfather. 

'  It  is  very  probable  there  was,  at  one  time,  a  brass,  with  an  inscription  and  arms, 
to  his  memory  in  Kelvedon  church  ;  as  there  are  now  many  hollows  there,  where 
such  have  formerly  existed;  and  which  were  no  doubt  torn  away,  to  satisfy  the  ra- 
pacity of  Cromwell's  soldiers,  sixty  years  afterwards, 


II.  Thomas  Hodilow,  baptized  at  Kelvedon,  in  Essex,  5th 
April  1580;  who  died  rot.  6,  however,  and  was  buried  there 
20th  May  1586. 

III.  John  Hodilow,  of  Witham,  in  Essex,  who  was  bap- 
tized at  Kelvedon,  1st  March  1583-4;  and  was  a  minor  in 
1586,  when  his  fadier,  by  his  will,  dated  Dec.  1586,  leaves 
him  his  house  at  Witham,  and  his  lands  called  Segmier's,  or 
Sedmarsh,  lying  in  Lutchingdon,  Lawland,  and  Mayland,  all 
in  Essex.  This  gentleman  lived  temp.  James  I.  and  Charles  I. 
but  apparently  on  bad  terms  with  his  brother  Arthur,  as  the 
latter,  in  recording  his  pedigree  in  1618,  omits  both  him,  John 
Hodilow,  and  also  his  sisters,  from  the  record.  They  were, 
however,  reconciled  before  death ;  for  Arthur  lying  sick  at 
Grafton  Underwood  in  1635,  this  John,  his  brother,  not  only 
wrote  his  will  for  him,  but  was  appointed  executor  therein  ; 
which  executorship,  however,  he  renounced  in  IGil,  after  his 
brother  Arthur  died.  Further  record  of  John  Hodilow  has 
not  been  discovered;  but  it  seems  very  certain  that  he  died 

I.  Anne  Hodilow,  baptized  at  Kelvedon  27th  June  1574, 
who,  by  her  father's  will,  has  a  legacy  of  100/.  A.  D.  1586. 

II.  Katharine  Hodilow,  baptized  at  Kelvedon,  18  Nov.  1575. 
She  has  a  legacy  of  10/.  by  her  father's  will;  and  was  living 
also  in  1594,  when  her  grandfather  Thomas  Hodilow  makes 
her  a  bequest. 

III.  INIarche  Hodilow,  (a  daughter  so  christened,  it  is 
needless  to  notice,  after  her  mother's  family.)  She  v/as  bap- 
tized at  Keldon  30th  Dec.  1576,  and  has  100  marks  by  her 
father's  will. 

IV.  Susanna  Hodilow,  born  a  few  days  before  her  father's 
death,  Dec.  1586,  and  in  his  will  styled,  "  my  daughter,  the 
child  new  born,  but  not  clu'istened."  She  was  baptized,  how- 
ever, on  the  day  of  her  father's  funeral,  22  Dec.  1586,  at  Kel- 
vedon.    Her  father  left  her  also  a  legacy  of  100  marks,  s 

•  From  their  brother  omitting  all  these  ladies  from  the  pedigree  he  recorded, 
their  marriages  are  unknown.  One  of  them,  however,  seems  to  have  married  a 
"William  Horsnell,  or  Horsenaile,  of  a  respectable  family  settled  chiefly  in  Berks  and 
Surrey,  which  bore,  "Argent,  a  cross  dovetailed  between  four  mullets  azure,"  under 
a  modern  grant,  or  confirmation,  from  the  Heralds'  College,  and  had  by  him  two 
sons ;  John  Horsenell,  and  George  Horsenell,  mentioned  as  cousins  in  the  will  of 


Akthuii  IIodilow,  Esq.  of  Grafton  Underwood,  ^^  in  Norlli- 
iuiij)tonslure,  for  there  was  liis  seat,  eldest  son  and  heir,  was 
baptized  at  Kclvedon,  in  Essex,  24  Feb.  1577-8,  and  succeeded 
his  father  in  1586,  and  his  grandfather  in  1595,  in  all  the  dif- 
ferent entailed  estates  at  Cambridge,  Ely,  Sec.  in  that  county, 
as  well  as  at  Kelvedon  and  elsewhere  in  Essex  ;  but  being  only 
young  at  his  flilher's  death,  was  brought  up  by  his  uncle,  Tho- 
mas Hodilow,  of  London,  and  Burton  Latimer,  in  Northamp- 
tonshire, and  marrying  a  lady  of  that  county  himself,  moreover, 
became  permanently  seated  at  Grafton  Underwood,  co.  North- 
ampton ;  and  being  not  only  a  man  of  considerable  pro- 
perty, but  of  very  good  connections,  both  paternally  and  mater- 
nally, recorded  his  pedigree  in  the  private  manuscripts  of  the 
celebrate  Augustin  Vincent,  Rouge  Croix,  A.  D.  1618,  (Vincent, 
112,  in  Coll.  Arm.)  and  which  pedigree,  there  can  be  no  doubt, 
it  was  intended  to  enter  in  the  regular  Visitation  of  Northamp- 
tonshire made  that  year  by  Vincent;  the  omission  of  which  evi- 
dently resulted  from  a  discovery  that  Mr.  Hodilow  had  com- 
mitted several  mistakes  in  the  baptismal  names  of  his  ancestors 
and  relatives, — a  species  of  blunder  by  no  means  uncommon  in 
many  of  the  pedigrees  which  actually  do  stand  on  record  in  the 
Visitations ;  and  which  are  evidence  in  a  court  of  laic  notwith- 
standing all  their  errors.^     Arthur  Hodilow's  recorded  pedigree 

John  Hodilow.  See  -post.  Still  it  is  not  impossible  that  these  Horsenells  might 
descend  from  a  previous  marriage  of  Mr.  Thomas  Henchman,  of  London,  hereafter 
noticed.  It  is  extremely  probable,  however,  that  there  was  some  marriage  with  the 
Gurdons  of  Ashlington,  in  Suffolk .  though  their  pedigree  displays  no  Hodilow 
connection.  That  worshipful  house  bore,  "Sable,  three  leopard's  faces  jessant  de 
lis  or.'' 

•  There  is  no  parish  register  at  Grafton  Underwood  anterior  to  1G80. 

"  To  substantiate  this  charge  against  the  Visitations,  let  no  less  than  two  different 
entries  be  referred  to,  relating  to  the  D'Oyly  family.  See  pedigree  ofD'Oylyof 
Turville  in  the  Bucks  Visitation  1634,  where  a  sister  of  the  then  representative  of 
the  family  is  said  to  be  "  Mary,"  wife  of  Richard  Willmott.  Her  name  was 
"  IMargaret ;  "  as  appears  by  both  her  mother's  will  and  her  baptismal  register. 
But  refer  also  to  the  James  pedigree  in  the  Durham  Visitation  Itilo,  where  a  son 
of  the  very  man  recording  the  genealogy  is  said  to  marry  Anne,  daughter  of  John 
D'Oyly,  of  Overbury,  in  Suffolk.  There  was  never  a  John  D'Oyly  in  that  family. 
Her  father  was  Edward  D'Oyly.  This  instance  is  particularly  referred  to,  as  the 
original  of  that  Visitation  is  in  the  British  Museum.  In  Hodilow's  record  of  his 
pedigree,  three  of  his  aunts,  the  husband  of  one  of  them,  his  maternal  grandfather, 
and  his  great-grandfather  Hodilow,  have  all  incorrect  baptismal  names,  as  has  been 
proved  by  wills,  &c.    And  it  is  more  than  probable  the  same  errors  e-xist  with 


descends  to  his  five  eldest  sons  and  his  daughter  Jane;  com- 
mencing with  a  "  Thomas  Hodilow,"  probably  intended  for  his 
great-great-grandfadier,  but  substituted  for  Robert  Hodilow  his 
great-grandfather.  Tiie  said  Arthur  Hodilow  was  twice  married. 
First,  about  IGOO,  to  Jane  Henchman,  only  sister  of  the  cele- 
brated and  Right  Rev.  Dr.  Humphry  Henchman,  D.D.  Lord 
Bishop  of  London,  and  Privy  Councillor,  and  High  Almoner 
to  King  Charles  11.,  whose  life  that  prelate  is  famous  for 
having  saved,  after  the  battle  of  Worcester  in  1651;  and 
daughter  of  Thomas  Henchman,  Esq.  of  Wellingborough,  in 
Northamptonshire,  and  of  London,  citizen  and  skinner,  by  Anne 
Griffith  his  wife,  aunt  of  Dr.  John  Owen,  before  mentioned  as 
husband  of  Sarah  Hodilow,  (first  cousin  to  Arthur,)  and  daugh- 
ter of  Robert  Griffith,  Esq.  Constable  of  Carnarvon  in  Wales ; 
and  thus  two  first-cousins  married  two  first-cousins. 

The  Henchmans  were  a  family  of  great  antiquity  and  respect- 
ability in  Northamptonshire,  having  been  seated  at  Great 
Dodington,  in  that  county,  at  a  very  distant  period  ;  and  the 
family  pedigree,  and  arms,  of  "Argent,  a  chevron  between  three 
horns  sable,  strung  gules,  on  a  chief  sable  three  lions  rampant  of 
the  first,"  were  recorded  at  the  London  Visitation  1634,  by  Mrs. 
Hodilow's  father,  the  said  Thomas  Henchman.  She  had  divers 
brothers  beside  the  Bishop ;  and  an  imperfect  pedigree  of  the 
family,  deduced  to  a  late  date,  is  extant  in  one  of  our  county 
histories.  Of  the  Bishop,  the  best  biography  is  in  Cassan's 
Lives  of  the  Bishops  of  Salisbury;  and  portraits  of  him  are  in 
existence.  Bishop  Henchman  was  undoubtedly  one  of  the  most 
eminent  prelates  that  England  has  ever  produced  . 

By  Jane  Henchman,  who  died  before  1635,  but  was  living  in 
1618,  Arthur  Hodilow  had  six  sons  and  two  daughters; 

L  Thomas  Hodilow,  of  Dantzic,  in  Germany,  an  eminent 
merchant  there.  He  was  born  about  1603;  aged  15  at  the 
recording  of  the  pedigree,  A.  D.  1618,  and,  by  reason  of  his 

regard  to  his  grandmother  Hodilow.  As  to  the  baptismal  names  of  the  grand 
and  great-grand  parents  of  the  party  recording,  it  is  no  exaggeration  to  state,  that 
they  are  as  often  wrong  as  right.  It  is  absurd  to  suppose  that  men  of  a  neces- 
sity must  possess  flCCMra^e  genealogical  information  up  to  their  great-grand  parents. 
On  the  contrary,  they  very  seldom  possess  perfect,  and  hardly  ever  correct  in- 
telligence thereon,  certainly  not  on  baptismal  names,  unless  they  are  "  more  or 
less"  genealogists. 


father's  large  family,  brought  up  a  merchant  in  London,  under 
one  Matthew  Cradock,  a  Staffordshire  gentleman  of  good  fa- 
mily, but  a  merchant  of  the  city  of  London,  like  many  other 
persons  of  good  pedigree,  at  that  time.  Such  was  the  reputa- 
tion of  the  "  trades  of  London  "  in  those  days  ;  and  so  well 
did  master  and  apprentice  agree,  that,  about  1635,  Matthew 
Cradock,  Esq.  took  Thomas  Hodilow  into  partnership  with 
him.  What  was  their  branch  of  merchandize  does  not  ap- 
pear :  but,  sure  it  is,  Thomas  Hodilow  became  soon  afterwards 
located  at  Danlzic,  in  Germany ;  and  made  his  will  there, 
May  1611  (17th  Car.  L),  styling  himself  "Thomas  Hodilow, 
merchant."  He  enters  into  long  details  of  his  affairs,  and, 
with  a  high  sense  of  honour,  makes  various  arrangements, 
and  gives  several  directions  regarding  his  property,  for  the 
express  purpose  of  preventing  his  partner,  Mr.  Cradock, 
losing  anything  by  him  ;  and  shows  himself  to  have  been  a 
young  man  of  the  highest  principles.  His  only  relation  named 
in  his  will  is  his  youngest  sister  Cecily  Hodilow,  to  whom  he 
leaves  all  he  was  able,  no  doubt  in  consequence  of  her  having 
received  the  affliction  of  a  stepmother  shortly  before.  He 
died  very  soon  after  v.  p.,  May  1611,  unmarried,  and  aged 
about  38  :  and  his  will  not  being  known  of  at  his  death,  ad- 
ministration was  granted  by  the  Prerogative  Court  of  Canter- 
bury in  1611,  to  liis  brother  John  Hodilow,  and  his  brother 
in  law  James  Fishe.  The  will,  however,  having  at  length 
been  brought  to  England,  v.-as  proved  in  both  the  Consistory 
Court  of  London,  and  the  Prerogative  Court  of  Canterbury, 
April  1645,  when  administration  annexed  thereto  was  granted 
to  Thomas  Jorden,  his  principal  assignee. 

II.  Rev.  Arthur  Hodilow,  of  whom  presently,  as  heir 
to  his  father. 

III.  Edmond  Hodilow,  a  minor  in  1618,  who  was  alive  in 
1635,  but  dead,  it  seems,  in  1611,  (and  certainly  soon  after,) 
having  married  a  lady  unrecorded,  by  whom  he  left  one  son, 

I.  Edmond  Hodilow,  of  whom  hereafter,  as  heir  male 

to  Arthur,  his  uncle. 

1\\  John  Hodilow,  of  Lubbenham,  in  Leicestershire,  gent, 
a  minor  in  1618.  He  made  his  will  3rd  Jan.  1618-9,  and  a 
nuncupative  codicil  about  five  weeks  before  his  death,  viz.  on 
the  14th  Feb.  1648-9.    lie  mentions  all  his  brothers  and  sis- 


ters  of  the  whole  blood  then  alive,  and  his  nephew  Edmond 
Hodilow,  Sec.  as  well  as  his  sister  in  law  Ermine  Hodilow  (of 
whom  hereafter),  and  her  house  in  Cambridge ;  John,  son  of 
his  uncle  Owen  Henchman:  and  John  and  George  Horsnell, 
sons  of  his  uncle  William  Horsnell.  He  makes  a  charitable 
bequest  to  the  poor  of  Grafton  Underwood,  in  Northampton- 
shire, and  appoints  his  brother  Richard  Hodilow,  of  London, 
goldsmith,  his  executor ;  who  proved  the  same  v.-iil  in  the 
Prerogative  Court  of  Canterbury  8  March  1648-9:  John 
Hodilow,  the  testator,  having  died  soon  after  his  codicil  was 
made,  s.  p.  and  a3t.  about  40. 

V.  Philip  Hodilow,  of  Radwell,  in  Herts,  vintner,  a  minor 
in  1618.  He  made  his  will  23  March  1641-2,  mentionino-  all 
his  brothers  and  sisters  of  the  whole  blood  then  livino-,  and  his 
nephew,  Edmond  Hodilow.  He  died  s.  p.  set.  about  30,  soon 
after,  and  his  will  was  proved  in  the  Prerogative  Court  of 
Canterbury  1642. 

VI.  Richard  Hodilow,  of  whom  hereafter,  as  eventually 
heir  male  of  the  family. 

I.  Jane  Hodilow,  a  minor  1618;  married  first  before  1641, 
(and  probably  before  1635,)  to  Janies  Fishe,  Esq.  of  the  emi- 
nent old  Hertfordshire  and  Suffolk  family  of  the  name,  who 
bore,  "  Chequ}',  or  and  gules,  on  a  pale  sable  three  mullets 
or;"  but  she  is  not  recorded  to   have  had  issue  by  him,  who 

died  before  1648-9.     She  espoused,  secondly, Constable, 

Esq.  before  1683;  and  both  she  and  he  were  alive,  at  a  fine 
old  age,  in  1696.  This  Mr.  Constable  was  no  doubt  a  mem- 
ber of  the  populous  Yorkshire  family  of  the  name,  which  bears, 
'^  Barry  of  six  or  and  azure,"  and  who  had  assumed  their 
patronymic  at  a  very  early  period  from  being  Constables  of 
of  Chester.  See  an  elaborate  account  of  this  family  in  Poul- 
son's  Holderness. 

H.  Cecily  Hodilow,  who  was  the  favourite  sister,  and  legatee, 
of  her  brother  Thomas.  She  was  born  subsequent  to  1618, 
and  was  married  between  1610  and  1648-9  to  one  Francis 
Collins,  Esq. ;  but  of  what  family  is  not  positively  knov/n ; 
though,  probably,  he  was  a  member  of  the  populous  house  of 
the  name  settled  in  Northamptonshire,  Suffolk,  Essex,  Staf- 
fordshire, and   Kent,  which  bore,  "  Vert,  a  griffin  segreant

or."     Both  he  and  slie  were  living  in   1GG3  and    1696;  but 

are  not  recorded  to  have  liad  issue. 

Arthur  Hodilow,  Esq.  of  Grafton  Underwood,  having  thus 
eight  children  by  his  first  wife,  Jane  Henchman,  survived  her, 
and  married  secondly,  between  1G24.  and  1635,  the  Lady  Susan- 
nah Humfrey,  widow  of  Sir  Thomas  Humfrey,  of  Swebston,  in 
Leicestershire,  Knt.  (who  received  that  dignity  from  James  L  in 
1603,  having  served  the  office  of  High  Sheriff  of  Leicestershire 
in  1602,)  and  daughter  of  George  Pilkington,  Esq.  of  Barston, 
in  Leicestershire,  and  Staunton  le  Dale,  in  Derbyshire,  and 
great-granddaughter  of  Edmund  Pilkington,  Esq.  by  Katharine 
liis  wife,  sister  of  William  Basset,  Esq.  of  Blore,  co.  Stafford,  (a 
lineal  descendant  of  royalty,)  which  last  Edmund  was  son  of  an- 
other Edmund  Pilkington,  Esq.  of  Staunton  le  Dale,  in  Derby- 
shire, by  Margaret,  his  second  wife,  daughter  of  John  Babing- 
ton,  Esq.  of  Dethick,  in  Derbyshire,  (see  Collectanea  Topogra- 
phica  et  Genealogica,  vol.  viii.  p.  327,)  great-great-grand-aunt 
of  Andiony  Babington,  of  Dethick,  the  celebrated  conspirator  of 
1586,  in  favour  of  Mary  Queen  of  Scots. 

The  Pilkingtons  were  one  of  the  very  best  families  in  Derby- 
shire, beino-  descended  from  a  common  ancestor  with  the  noble 
house  of  Pilkington,  of  Chevet,  in  Yorkshire,  Nova  Scotia  Baro- 
nets. And  George  Pilkington,  Esq.,  the  only  bi-other  of  the 
said  Lady  Susan,  recorded  their  pedigree  in  1619  at  the  Leices- 
tershire Visitation,  with  their  arms  of  "  Argent,  a  cross-potence 
voided  gules;"  the  said  Susanna  having  in  that  year  married  Sir 
Thomas  Humfrey,  who  also  had  recorded  his  pedigree  and  arms 
at  the  same  visitation  ;  his  arms  being  being,  "Quarterly,  1st 
and  4Ui,  Azure,  a  bend  between  four  leopard's  faces  or;  2nd  and 
3rd,  Gules,  a  cross-potence  argent,  pierced  gules,  charged  with 
twelve  escallops  sable."  The  Pilkingtons,  it  may  be  noticed, 
were  entided  to  quarter,  1st,  "...  fretty  ...  (  ?  Oi\fretty  yules) 

a  canton  ermine;^'  and  2nd,  " on  a  fesse ,  three 

mullets  ....  pierced;"  (?for  Noel  and  Wyverston.) 

In  1635,  Arthur  Hodilow  and  Dame  Susan  Humfrey,  his 
wife,  had  a  Chancery  suit,  versus  Sir  .John  Monson,  Knt.  re- 
garding the  affairs  of  her  deceased  husband.  Sir  Thomas  Hum- 
frey. He  had  also  another  in  1625,  against  one  Richard 
Norton,  an  innholder  at  Bedford,  arising  out  of  a  debt  owing  to 


him,  Arthur  Hodilovv,  by  one  John  Dover,  of  Cranford,  in 
Northamptonshire,  deceased.  His  bill  in  that  suit  was  filed  20th 
June  1625.  In  his  suit  with  Sir  John  Monson,  his  bill  dates 
10th  Oct.  1635;  Sir  John  Monson's  answer  was  sworn,  14th 
May  1636.  Neither,  however,  materially  illustrate  the  Hodilow 

Arthur  Hodilow,  of  Grafton  Underwood,  made  his  will  27th 
February  1635,  being  very  sick.  He  leaves  50/.  apiece  to  his 
sons  Thomas,  Arthur,  and  Edmond ;  to  the  first  named,  only  on 
condition  that  he  (Thomas)  frees  the  testator's  executors  from 
his  master's  (Matthew  Cradock's)  claims.  He  leaves  his  daugh- 
ter Jane  ten  shillings  for  a  ring ;  and  all  his  other,  though  nu- 
merous children,  lOOl.  each.  He  appoints  his  brother  John 
Hodilow  his  executor,  who  wrote  his  will  for  him ;  and  con- 
stitutes his  (testator's)  wife  residuary  legatee.  He  lived,  how- 
ever, till  the  month  of  May  1641,  when  dying  eet.  63,  he  was 
succeeded  in  the  lands  and  houses  at  Cambridge  and  elsewhere, 
and  in  all  the  entailed  property,  by  his  second  but  eldest  sur- 
viving son,  Arthur.  Dame  Susan,  his  wife,  survived  him ;  and 
John  Hodilow,  her  brother  in  law,  renouncing  the  executorship 
of  his  will,  letters  of  administration,  with  will  annexed,  were 
granted  by  the  Prerogative  Court  of  Canterbury  to  Dame  Susan, 
his  relict,  2nd  June  1641. 

This  lady  survived  him  many  years,  and  latterly  resided  at 
Swebston,  in  Leicestershire,  the  seat  of  her  former  husband,  Sir 
Thomas  Humfrey;''  and  made  her  Avill  there  11  Jan.  1663-4, 
desiring  burial  in  Swebston  church.  She  leaves  to  her  son 
Thomas  Humfrey,  and  her  daughter  Frances,  now  wife  of  John 
Moseley;  to  her,  Frances,  one  shilling,  in  lieu  of  all  claims. 
She  also  leaves  to  her  daughter  Grace  Moseley,  of  whom  she 

^  Lady  Humfrey  had  several  children  by  Sir  Thomas  Humfrey,  of  Swebston, 
(who  died  1624,  intestate,  she,  Lady  Susan,  administering  to  his  effects),  viz. 

I.  John,  and  II.  Edward  Humfrey :  both  of  whom  died  young,  or  s.  p. 

III.  Thomas  Humfrey,  of  Swebston,  bapt.  1623,  heir  to  his  father  1624,  and 
living  1663-4. 

I.  Elizabeth  Humfrey,  bapt.  26  August  1621  ;  married  to  Henry  Bedell,  of 
Great  Catworth,  in  Huntingdonshire,  gent,  and,  dying  in  1650,  was  buried  at 
Swebston,  leaving  issue.

daughter Bedell,  and  to  her  sons  George  Hodilow  and  William 
Hodilow,  and  to  her  son  in  law  Mr.  Richard  Hodilow,  and  to 
her  daughters  in  law,  Constable  and  Collings.  She  says  that  the 
said  Cecily  Collings  had  always  claimed  against  her  the  legacy 
of  50/.  left  by  her  late  husband,  Mr.  Arthur  Hodilow,  to  his  son 
Thomas  Hodilow,  under  the  will  of  her  brother  Thomas  Hodi- 
low :  but  that  the  said  Thomas  died  before  his  father,  and  that 
it  had  therefore  lapsed  ;  yet,  nevertheless,  "  from  the  love  I  bear 
to  her,  Cecily,"  says  old  Lady  Humfrey,  "  I  will  that  she  has 
the  same  legacy  of  50/.,  upon  her  giving  my  executor  a  receipt 
thereof."  She  appoints  her  "  beloved  son,  Anthony  Hodilow," 
sole  executor  and  residuary  legatee ;  and  dying,  she  was  buried 
at  Swebston  12th  Sept.  1664.  Her  will  was  proved  in  the  Pre- 
rogative Court  of  Canterbury  27th  Sept.  1664,  by  the  executor. 
By  her,  Arthur  Hodilow  had  further  issue,  four  sons  and  two 

VII.  George  Hodilow,  of  London,  a  tobacconist  and 
citizen  of  London,  in  the  time  of  Charles  II. ;  who  married, 
by  licence  granted  at  the  Faculty  Office,  Doctors'  Commons, 
26th  Oct.  1663,  Abigail,  daughter  of  Mr.  Henry  Barker, 
of  London,  and  Elizabeth  his  wife;  but  of  what  family 
of  Barkers  is  not  positively  ascertained.  This  George  Hodi- 
low had  a  Chancery  suit  in  1667-8,  with  one  Watson,  which, 
being  of  a  curious  nature,  shall  be  briefly  related.  George 
Hodilow  having  bought  of  a  Mr.  William  Antleby,  of  Lon- 
don, merchant,  about  August  1666,  a  parcel  of  tobacco, 
lying  in  the  ship  "Bartelott,"  of  Rapahanhock,  newly  arrived 
from  Virginia,  and  then  sailing  in  the  Thames,  the  said 
tobacco,  upon  being  taken  out  of  the  ship,  was  found  to  be 
greatly  injured  and  damaged,  through  the  carelessness  of  John 
Watson,  the  master  of  the  vessel.  Whereupon  George  Hodi- 
low protested  that  some  allowance  ought  to  be  made  in  con- 
sequence of  its  condition  ;  and  moreover  would  not  permit  it 
to  be  taken  into  his  warehouses,  till  such  allowance  was  made, 
and  till  the  transaction  was  satisfactorily  concluded.  To  this 
Watson  would  not  accede;  so  the  tobacco  remained  lying  on 
the  wharf,  till  the  Great  Fire  of  London  broke  out,  Sept. 
1666,  and  all  the  tobacco  was  consumed  upon  the  wharf. 


Therefore,  in  Feb.  1667-8,  George  Hodilow  filed  a  bill  in 
Chancery,  praying  that  Watson,  and  others,  therein  men- 
tioned, might  be  compelled  to  appear  and  answer,  (&c.  &c.) 
as  it  was  entirely  through  their  carelessness  and  obstinacy 
that  the  tobacco  was  not  warehoused  in  the  first  instance. 
But  the  suit  was  never  concluded;  Watson  had  decamped 
abroad ;  and  George  Hodilow  died  very  soon  after,  and  that 
intestate;  letters  of  administration  being  granted  in  Oct.  1670 
by  the  Prerogative  Court  of  Canterbury,  to  Abigail  his  widow ; 
who  surviving,  had  a  Chancery  suit  in  1672  with  one  Moss,  a 
London  tobacconist,  and  a  person  of  the  name  of  Church, 
concerning  matters  of  trade  between  them  and  her  late  hus- 
band. She  made  her  will,  9th  Nov.  1675,  appointing  her 
father  and  mother.  Barker,  executors,  and  her  brothers  in  law, 
Richard  Hodilow  and  John  Stepheyne,  supervisors,  and  leaves 
the  bulk  of  her  property  to  her  only  son  George  Hodilow, 
then  a  minor :  but  sundries  thei'ein  mentioned,  to  her  sister 
Stepheyne  :  and  speaks  of  her  other  brothers  and  sisters.  She 
died  in  the  same  month  and  year,  and  her  will  was  proved  18 
Nov.  1675,  in  the  Prerogative  Court  of  Canterbury,  by  her 
father,  Henry  Barker.  By  her,  George  Hodilow  left  an  only 

I.  George  Hodilow,  of  London,  a  minor  at  the  death  of 
his  parents,  having  been  born  about  1666.  He  was  brought 
up  by  his  maternal  relations,  the  Barkers,  his  guardians, 
and  made  his  will,  4th  .June  1692,  styling  himself  citizen 
and  leatherseller  of  London,  but  then  belonging  to  iheii- 
Majesties'  ship  "  Play  Prize."  He  speaks  of  prize  money 
due  to  him,  under  the  Royal  Declaration  of  1689.  Appoints 
Joseph  Barker,  of  London,  gent.,  executor;  and  leaves  all 
his  property  to  his  maternal  relations,  and  mentions  none  of 
the  Hodilows.  He  died  s.  p.  a  young  man,  and  aet.  about 
30,  soon  after;  and  the  said  Joseph  Barker  proved  his  will 
in  the  Prerogative  Court  of  Canterbury,  20  Feb.  1695-6. 
VHI.  William  Hodilow,  mentioned  in  the  will  of  his  mo- 
ther, 1663-4,  as  then  living.  He  married,  and  had  a  son 
christened  after  himself, 

L  William  Hodilow,  mentioned  as  "nephew"  in  the 
will  of  his  uncle  Richard,  A.  D.  1696.  Of  him,  however, 
there  is  no  fiu-ther  record  ;  and  it  seems  certain  he  died  s.  p. 


52  THE    FAMILY    OF    HODILOW,    OF 

IX.  Henry  Hodilovv,  of  the  city  of  Chester,  gentleman ; 
who  appears  to  have  been  the  roue,  of  the  family,  and  was 
latterly  dependent  upon  Richard  Hodilow,  his  elder  and 
wealthy  half-brother.  Henry  died  unmarried,  and  intestate, 
about  1696  ;  and  administration  to  such  effects  as  he  possessed 
was  granted  1696-7,  by  the  Prerogative  Court  of  Canter- 
bury, to  his  brother,  Anthony  Hodilow. 

X.  Anthony  Hodii-ow,  of  whom  hereafter,  as  male  repre- 
sentative of  the  family,  after  the  death  of  Richard  Hodilow. 

IH.  Grace  Hodilow,  married  to  Moseley,  and  alive 

1663;  and  then  apparently  in  a  careworn,  broken  down,  and 
declining  state. 

IV.  Frances  Hodilow,  married  to  another  of  that  name, 
viz.  John  Moseley,  before  1664.  This  lady  was  cut  out 
with  a  legacy  of  one  shilling  by  the  will  of  her  mother  Lady 
Susan  Humfrey.  Moseley,  of  Leicestershire,  was  a  good 
family,  and  bore  "  Sable,  a  chevron  between  thi-ee  millpecks 
argent."  But  a  strange  mystery  hangs  over  the  marriages  of 
Grace  and  Frances  Hodilow ;  and,  it  is  strongly  suspected, 
that  the  above  John  Moseley  was  first  married  to  Grace  Ho- 
dilow; and  after  ill-using  her,  and  obtaining  a  divorce  against 
her,  married  to  her  sister  Frances.  But  this  is  conjecture, 
rather  than  otherwise. 
Now  however  to 

The  Rev.  Arthur  Hodilow,  of  Stansty,  in  Wrexham  parish, 
in  Denbighshire  in  Wales,  second  but  eldest  surviving  son  and 
heir  of  Arthur  Hodilow,  Esq.  of  Grafton  Underwood.  This 
gentleman  was  a  minor  in  1618,  and  being  brought  up  to  holy 
orders,  was  probably  educated  at  Cambridge ;  but  his  name  has 
in  vain  been  searched  for  among  the  A.  B.  graduates  of  that 
University,  y  However  this  was,  it  is  certain  that  he  received 
promotion  from  his  relative  Bishop  Owen,  through  whose  in- 
ducement he  settled  at  Stansty,  in  Wrexham  parish  aforesaid, 
Wrexham  living  being  in  the  patronage  of  the  see  of  St.  Asaph's. 
Here  he  resided,  and,  though  the  entailed  property  at  Cambritige 
descended  to  him  at  his  father's  death,  he  remained  at  Stansty, 
having  married  a  lady  of  that  neighbourliood.  His  wife  was 
Ermine  Meredith,  fifth  of  the  six  daughters  of  Hugh  Meredith, 
Esq.  of  London,  but  afterwards  of  Wrexham  and  Pentrebychan, 
r  Add.  MSS.  No.  5885,  ia  Brit.  Mus. 


in  Wales,  (uncle  of  Sir  William  Meredith,  of  Stansty  aforesaid, 
Baronet,  so  created  in  1622;  though  the  title  is  now  extinct,) 
by  Elizabeth  his  wife,  daughter  of  John  Trott,  of  Colney 
Heath,  co.  Middlesex.  The  said  Ermine  was  sister  also  of  Ellis 
Meredith,  of  Pentrebychan,  Esq.  ancestor  of  the  present  Henry 
W'^arter  Meredith,  Esq.  of  that  place ;  and  her  eldest  sister, 
Susanna,  became  the  second  wife  of  Robert  Pulleston,  Esq.  of 
Havod-y-werne  in  Wrexham  parish,  brother  and  heir  of  Sir 
Edward  Pulleston,  Knt.  The  arms  of  this  very  ancient  and 
eminent  Welsh  house  of  Meredith  were,  "  Azure,  a  lion  ram- 
pant or;  "  and  they  were  moreover  entitled  to  quarter  the  coats 
of  seven  families,^  viz.  (1st.  Meredith,  as  above) ;  2nd.  Azure,  a 
fesse  or  between  three  nag's  heads  erased  argent ;  3rd.  Azure, 
a  lion)  statant  guardant  or;  4th.  Sable,  a  chevron  between 
(?  stag's)  heads  erased  or  ;  5th.  Azure,  a  lion  rampant  ermine ; 
6th.  Gules,  three  chevronels  argent ;  7th.  Argent,  a  cross  en- 
grailed and  couped,  flory  at  the  ends,  between  four  birds  sable ; 
(8th.  As  first.) 

By  his  marriage,  Mr.  Hodilow  became  allied  to  almost  all  the 
notable  families  in  Denbighshire,  and  the  adjoining  counties ; 
these  Merediths  having  matched,  generation  after  generation, 
with  one  or  other  of  them  ;  and,  according  to  Welsh  genealogy, 
that  family  itself  was  founded  by  Eunyd  Gwernewy,  a  chieftain 
of  North  Whales,  and  head  of  one  of  the  fifteen  tribes. 

Arthur  Hodilow,  who  appears  to  have  been  a  man  of  feeble 
constitution  and  delicate  health,  made  his  will  "  with  his  own 
weake  hand,"  he  tells  us,  15  July  1644;  styling  himself  "of 
Stansty,  Clerk  ;"  he  leaves  to  his  wife  and  daughter,  and  appoints 
his  brother  John  executor.  He  mentions  his  aunt  (in  law), 
Mrs.  Elizabeth  Meredith,  of  Stansty,  from  whom  he  had  received 
much  kindness,  and  his  cousin  (in  law),  (her  son)  Edward  Me- 
redith, of  Stansty ;  also  his  sister  (in  law),  Mrs.  Susan  Pulles- 
ton, of  Havod-y-werne,  and  his  cousins  (by  marriage)  Jane  and 
Katharine  Pulleston.^     He  declined  very  gradually;  deceased

54  THE    FAMILY    OF    HODILOW,    OF 

about  1617,  aged  circa  42;  and  his  will  was  proved  in  the  C. 
P.  C.  29  Nov.  1647.  By  the  said  Ermine  Meredith,  who 
survived  him,  and  held  his  house  and  estate  at  Cambridge 
during  her  widowhood,  (which  he  must  have  settled  upon  her 
soon  after  he  succeeded  to  it;)  but  continued  to  reside  at  Stiinsty, 
and  was  living  his  widow  in  1648  and  1652,  he  had  issue  an 
only  child, 

I.  Jane  Hodilow,  liis  sole  heiress  at  law,  a  minor  1644. 
She  was  living  unmarried  in  1648  and  1652,  when  legacies  are 
left  her  by  her  relatives :  in  the  former  year  by  her  uncle 
John  Hodilow ;  in  the  latter  by  her  aunt,  Mrs.  Susan  Pulles- 
ton.  But  no  further  recortl  has  been  discovered  regarding 
her,  or  her  mother ;  though  they  carried  the  Cambridge  pro- 
perty out  of  the  family. 

Edmond  Hodilow,  gent,  son  of  Edmond,  and  nephew  of 
the  Rev.  Arthur  Hodilow,  became  heir  male  of  the  family  on 
the  death  of  the  latter,  circa  1647.  Very  little,  however,  is 
known  of  him.  He  was  a  minor  in  1641,  and  had  a  legacy  in 
the  will  of  his  uncle  John  Hodilow  1648;  but  it  is  clear  that  he 
died  s.  p.  quite  a  young  man,  not  long  after ;  and  thus  the  repre- 
sentation of  the  family  devolved  on  his  uncle, 

Richard  Hodilow,  Esq.  of  Hampstead,  in  Middlesex,  and 
of  London,  citizen,  and  a  goldsmith  of  great  eminence  in  the 
time  of  Charles  H.  (sixth  son  of  Arthur  Hodilow,  Esq.  of  Graf- 
ton Underwood,  co.  Northampton,  by  Jane  his  first  wife,  sister 
of  Dr.  Humfrey  Henchman,  Bishop  of  London.)  This  Richard 
Hodilow  was  born  about  1620,  and  was  apprenticed  as  "  Rich- 
ard, son  of  Arthur  Hodilow,  of  Grafton  Underwood,  co.  North- 
ampton, gent."  to  John  Wilding,  of  London,  goldsmith,  1  De- 
cember  1637  :  where    he   then  became  settled,  and  eventually 

William  Meredith,  of  London,  Leeds  Abbey  in  Kent,  and  Wrexham,  Knt.  the 
father  of  Sir  William  Meredith,  Bart.)  made  his  will  26  Oct.  1624,  (proved  in  C. 
P.  C.  16  May  1625,)  and  dying  in  1624-5,  left  issue  one  son,  Ellis  Meredith  of  W. 
and  P.  (who  married,  as  in  Burke's  Commoners,  and  had,  1.  Hugh,  who  continued 
the  family  :  2.  William  ;  1.  Anne  ;  2.  Elizabeth  ;)  and  six  daughters,  I.  Susan  M. 
second  wife,  before  162.5,  of  Robert  Pulleston,  Esq.  of  Havod-y-werne,  whom  she 
survived  ;  made  her  will  3  April  1652,  died  25  May  1652 ;  will  proved  in  C.  P.  C. 
16  July  1652.  (She  left  issue.)  IL  Jane  M.  alive  1624.  III.  Rose  M.  alive  1624. 
IV.  Prudence  M.  alive  1624  and  1652.  "V,  Ermine  M.  wife,  as  above,  of  Rev. 
Arthur  Hodilow,  but  living  unmarried  1624.  VI.  Elizabeth  M.  living  1624  and 


rose  to  be  one  of  the  first  goldsmiths  in  London  ;  no  doubt,  de- 
riving much  of  his  importance,  and  connexion  in  business,  from 
being  nephew  to  Bishop  Henchman,  then  one  of  the  Privy 
Council  to  King  Charles  II.  He  receives  mention  in  the  will 
of  his  brother  Philip,  164-1 :  and,  1648-9,  was  executor  to  his 
brother  John  Hodilow ;  and  a  legatee  in  the  will  of  his  step- 
mother, Lady  Susan  Humfrey,  1663-4.  But  ere  this,  he  had 
married.  Richard  Hodilow  espoused,  pursuant  to  licence  granted 
16  Jan.  1650-L  at  the  Faculty  Office,  Doctors'  Commons,  Lon- 
don, Susanna,  second  of  the  three  daughtei's,  and  coheiresses,  of 
William  Pycheford,  or  Pitchford,  gent,  of  Lee  Brockhurst,  co. 
Salop,  and  of  St.  Mary's  Colechurch,  London,  citizen  and 
haberdasher,  son  of  Thomas  Pycheford,  Esq.  of  Lee  Brockhurst, 
in  Salop,  and  uncle  of  Thomas  Pycheford,  Esq.  of  Lee  Brock- 
hurst, who  married  Jane  Hill,  of  Hawkstone,  co.  Salop,  ances- 
trix  of  the  Lord  Berwick,  and  of  the  Baronets  Hill  of  Hawk- 
stone;  nephew  also  of  William  Pycheford,  of  London,  grocer, 
■whose  wife  and  widow  Elizabeth  Aldersey,  niece  of  Randle  Al- 
dersey,  Esq.  of  Aldersey,  in  Cheshire,  married  secondly,  Thomas 
first  Lord  Baron  Coventry;  and  likewise  nephew  of  Robert 
Pycheford,  Esq.  of  St.  Alban's,  in  Herts,  who,  at  the  Hertford- 
shire Visitation,  in  1634,  recorded  his  pedigree  from  his  grand- 
father, John  Pycheford,  Esq.  of  Lee  Brockhurst,  and  the  arms 
of  the  family  (which  had  been  allowed  to  be  legally  and  right- 
fully borne  by  them,  by  Robert  Cooke  Clarenceux,  temp. 
Eliz.)  of  "  Azure,  a  cinquefoil  between  six  martlets  or :" — and 
which  ancient  house  of  Pycheford,  or  de  Pycheford,  was  lineally 
descended  from  Sir  John  de  Pycheford,  who  died  seised  of 
the  manor  of  Lee  Brockhurst  13th  Edw.  I.  (1284-5),  whose 
progenitor  Ralph  de  Pycheford  was,  for  his  valiant  conduct  at 
Bridgenorth  Castle,  in  the  reign  of  Henry  I.  enfeoffed  by  that 
monarch  of  Littlebrug  in  that  neighbourhood,  to  be  held  by  the 
service  of  finding  dry  wood  for  the  fires  in  Bridgenorth  Castle 
when  the  King  came  thither.  The  two  other  daughters,  and  co- 
heiresses, of  William  Pycheford,  were,  1st.  Elizabeth  Pycheford, 
married  to  Thomas  Steane,  or  Stayne,  of  London,  citizen  and 
waxchandler ;  and  3rd,  Rebeccah  Pycheford,  married  to  Isaac 
Honywood,  of  Hampstead,  in  Middlesex,  (son  of  Edward  Hony- 
wood,  of  Islington,  who  was  son  of  Sir  Thomas  Honywood,  of 

56  THE    TAMILY    OF    HODILOW,    OF 

Evington,  in  Kent,  and  brother  of  Sir  John,  the  ftither  of  Sir 
Edward  Ilonywood,  Bart.),  and  both  had  issue.'' 

By  his  said  wife,  Richard  Hodilow  acquired  a  considerable 
real  estate,  both  in  possession  and  remainder,  situate  in  London 
and  Hampstead,  as  well  as  a  larger  amount  of  personal  property, 
in  the  lifetime  of  her  father ;  being  married  nine  years  before 
that  gentleman's  decease,  who,  however,  at  his  death  in  1659, 
left  the  mass  of  his  property  undisposed  of  to  the  youngest  and 
favourite  of  his  three  daughters,  Rebeccah,  who  was  then  in  her 
minority,  but  afterwards  married  Mr.  Honywood.  Remainder, 
however,  to  his  daughters  Steane  and  Hodilow,  and  their  heirs. 
Part  of  this  property  consisted  of  houses  in  Coleman  Street, 
London,  which  were  burnt  down  by  the  Great  Fire  in  Sept. 
J  666,  as  appears  from  No.  5079,  of  the  Add.  MSS.  in  the  Brit. 
Mus.,  Decree  No.  69 :  the  said  Rebeccah  Pycheford  being  then 
wife  of  Isaac  Honywood,  and  possessed  of  the  property,  which  in 
"  default  of  issue  was  to  descend,  pursuant  to  William  Pych- 
ford's  will,  dated  4  Feb.  1658-9,  to  the  said  Elizabeth  Steane 
and  Susanna  Hodilow."  In  1676,  Richard  Hodilow  had  a  Chan- 
cery suit,  as  executor  of  his  brother  in  law,  Thomas  Steane, 
versus  John,  son  of  Sir  Charles  Doe,  of  London,  Knt. ;  Richard 
Hodilow  being  then  of  London,  goldsmith.     He  latterly,  how- 

'  An  article  containing  the  genealogy  of  the  Honywoods  allied  to,  and  descended 
from,  Rebecca  Pycheford,  may  appear  in  the  pages  of  this  work.  The  following 
notes  on  Steane,  or  Stayne,  will  complete  the  destinies  of  these  three  coheiresses. 

Thomas  Steane,  or  Stayne,  of  London,  citizen  and  waxchandler,  was  mar- 
ried to  Elizabeth  Pycheford,  the  eldest  of  the  three  coheiresses,  in  her  father's  life- 
time, and  obtained  a  pretty  fortune  by  her.  He  was  without  doubt  a  son  of  the 
old  Yorkshire  and  Lincolnshire  family  of  the  name,  who  bore  "  Argent,  two  bars 
engrailed  sable,"  and  took  their  name  from  Stayne  in  the  latter  shire,  at  which 
place  they  had  their  chief  seat.  This  Thomas  Staines  (for  he  spelt  his  name  in 
every  way)  made  his  will  26  June  1674,  appointing  his  brother  in  law,  Richard  Ho- 
dilow, executor;  and  dying  about  August  1675,  it  was  proved  in  C.  P.  C.  by  the 
executor  in  or  before  June  1676,  who  had  subsequently  a  vexatious  Chancery  suit 
against  John,  son  of  Sir  Charles  Doe,  Knt.  arising  out  of  the  executorship  ;  Steane 
having  been  executor  to  John  Lane,  a  London  grocer,  (partner  with  one  Jeremy 
Gough,)  which  Lane  had  been  a  great  friend  of  Sir  Charles  Doe.  Richard  Hodi- 
low's  bill  was  filed  20  June  167G.  John  Doe's  answer  sworn  8  May  1677.  And 
from  the  proceedings  therein,  we  find  that,  by  Elizabeth  his  said  wife,  who  survived 
him,  Thomas  Staines  had  left  only  two  daughters  his  coheiresses,  I.  Anne  S.  mar- 
ried 1676-7  to  Robert  Hill,  gent.;  and  IL  Elizabeth  S.  a  minor,  and  unmarried 
1677.  Who  with  their  mother,  Robert  Hill,  Jeremy  Gough,  Benjamin  Lane,  gent, 
being  parties  to  the  said  suit,  put  in  their  answers,  swora  36th  June  1677  ;  Eliza- 
beth, the  daughter,  by  her  mother,  her  guardian. 


ever,  resided  al  Hampstead,  in  Middlesex.  His  wife,  who  pre- 
deceased him,  was  buried  in  St.  John's  church,  Hampstead  (the 
old  edifice ') ;  and  record  proves  Richard  Hodilow  to  be  living 
there  in  1684,  and  in  1687.  Nevertheless  he  made  his  last  will 
23rd  Feb.  1696-7,  styling  himself  of  London,  goldsmith  ;  which 
will  is  sealed  with  a  beautiful  little  seal  containing  the  Hodilow 
arms  and  crest,  as  before  described,  with  a  great  deal  of  mantling 
and  ornament;  but  without  any  impalement  or  quartering;  and 
thus  engraved,  in  every  probability,  before  his  marriage,  as  his 
wife  was  not  only  a  coheiress,  but  well  entitled  to  coat  armour. 
He  desires  burial  in  Hampstead  church,  near  his  deceased 
wife,  if  there  be  room,  and  if  not  under  his  pew.  He  leaves 
his  personal  property,  which  was  the  chief  part  of  his  estate, 
between  his  two  sons  in  law ;  and  devises  his  Hampstead 
copyhold  messuage  and  lands  to  his  son  in  law,  Dawes,  while  to 
Susan  Burren,  his  other  daughter,  wife  of  Anthony  Burren,  he 
leaves  his  leasehold  estate,  viz.  five  houses  in  Cinnamon  Street, 
London,  parish  of  St.  John's,  Wapping,  which  he  had  purchased 
of  John  Wellbourn.  He  mentions  having  advanced  money  to 
his  nephew  William  Hodilow,  which  he  foregoes,  and  also  men- 
tions that  he  had  lent  money  to  the  husbands  of  his  sisters  Con- 
stable and  Collins.  He  speaks  of  having  allowed  his  brother 
Henry  Hodilow,  a  certain  sum  per  annum,  for  some  years  :  and 
appears,  in  fact,  to  have  done  a  great  deal  for  his  family.  He 
alludes  to  his  brother  John  Hodilow,  as  being  dead ;  but  never 
once  mentions  his  half-brother  Anthony.  He  appoints  his  sons 
in  law,  Dawes  and  Burren,  residuary  legatees,  but  neglects  to 
appoint  executors.  He  died  about  sixteen  months  afterwards 
aged  about  78,  and  was  interred  in  Hampstead  church  18th  May 
1698.  Before*^  his  funeral,  however,  administration,  with  will 
annexed,  was  granted  12th  May  1698,  by  the  Prerogative  Court 
of  Canterbury,  to  his  two  sons  in  law,  Dawes  and  Burren.  Rich- 
ard Hodilow,  the  goldsmith,  was  very  rich,  so  much  so,  that 
the  traditions  of  his  wealth  have  ever  been  fostered,  and  kept 
up  most  tenaciously,  by  his  descendants :  and  with  him  un- 
questionably fell  the  fortunes  of  the  Hodilow  family;  though,  as 

*  Old  Hampstead  church  stood  East  of  the  Tower,  and  is  now  part  of  the  church- 
yard. By  an  extraordinarj^  expedient,  the  present  edifice  was  erected  West  of  the 
old  steeple  ;  which  still  remains. 

''  This  is  singular,  and  difficult  to  give  a  reason  for. 

68  THE    FAMILY    OF    HODILOW,    OF 

we  shall  presently  show,  the  male  line  did  not  entirely  terminate 
at  his  death ;  for  he  left  a  surviving  bi'other  of  the  half-blood. 
By  Susan  Pycheford,  Richard  Hodilow,  however,  had  only 
daughters ;  coheiresses  to  him  ;  and  to  their  maternal  grand- 
father, William  Pycheford,  in  common  with  their  cousins  the 
Steanes  and  Honywoods.     They  were, 

I.  Elizabeth  Hodilow,  eldest  coheiress,  born  about  1657, 
married  at  Hampstead  1684,  by  licence  granted  at  the  Vicar 
General's  office.  Doctors'  Commons,  London,  24  Nov.  1684, 
to  Samuel  Dawes,  then  of  St.  Michael's,  Cornhill,  London, 
citizen,  and  a  member  of  the  Fishmonger?'  Company.  The 
licence  describes  each  as  of  twenty-seven  years  of  age,  and 
respectively  a  bachelor  and  spinster.  The  said  Samuel  Dawes 
lived  at  Hampstead  on  his  father  in  law's  property,  and  ap- 
pears to  have  had  issue  in  1696.  But  it  has  been  fruitless  at- 
tempting to  trace  his  possible  posterity ;  and  there  is  strong 
reason  to  believe,  that  he,  his  wife,  and  children  were  all  dead 
s.  p.  in  1726.  Of  what  family  of  Dawes  he  was  a  member  is 
unknown ;  though  most  probably  of  a  younger  branch  of 
Dawes  of  Putney,  in  Surrey,  which  family  bore,  "  Argent,  on 
a  bend  azure,  cotised  gules,  between  six  poleaxes  sable,  three 
swans  or ; "  and  the  eldest  branch  of  which  was  raised  to  the 
rank  of  Baronet  in  1663,  though  now  extinct. 

II.  Susanna  Hodilow,  (the  second  coheiress  and  daughter 
of  Richard  Hodilow,)  born  about  1664,  became  (pursuant  to 
licence  granted  10th  March  1687-8,  at  the  Vicar  General's 
Office,  Doctors'  Commons,)  the  second  wife  of  Anthony  Bur- 
ren,  of  St.  Dunstan's  in  the  East,  London,  merchant,  he  being 
then  a  widower  ast.  36,  and  she  spinster  set.  23 :  which  An- 
thony Burren  had  recorded  his  arms  and  pedigree  at  the 
London  Visitation  1687;  the  former,  however,  being  respited

•  Burren,  of  Reading,  co.  Berks,  living  temp.  Elizabeth,  appears  to  hare 

had  issue  two  sons, 

I.  Richard,  of  whom  presently. 

II.  Edward,  of  Reading,  maltster,  sometime  churchwarden  of  St.  Laurence's 
church  there,  who  died  in  1657. 

Richard  Bdrren,  Gent,  of  Reading,  born  temp.  Elizabeth,  owned  considerable 
property  at  Reading,  and  was  mayor  of  that  borough  in  1638  (14th  Car.  I.)  being 
so  appointed  in  the  corporation  charter  granted  that  year.    He  married  before 


acquired  considerable  personal  property,  and  the  leasehold 
estate  in  St.  John's,  Wapping,  London.  He  lived  till  1698 
in  St.  Dunstan's  in  the  East,  but  removed  elsewhere  after  the 

1612  Avice,  daughter  of :  aud  made  his  will  i?9th  May  1643.     He  died  soon 

after,  and  it  was  proved  27th  Jan.  1644-5,  in  the  Prerogative  Court  of  Canterbury. 
By  his  said  wife,  who  survived  him,  he  had  issue, 
I.  Richard,  his  heir. 

I.  Avice,  bapt.  at  St.  Laurence's,  Reading,  Feb.  1616,  and  married  v.  p.  to 
Anthony  Philpe,  of  London,  merchant,  by  whom  she  had  issue.  He  died  before 
1672,  or  in  that  year.  She  surviving  him  made  her  will  8th  Feb.  1672-3  (25  Car. 
II.),  and,  djang  liis  widow  in  1687,  was  buried  with  heraldic  honours.  The  arms 
used  being"  Or,  semue  of  cross-crosslets  gules,  a  wolf  rampant  sable,"  for  Philpe, 
impaled  with  Burren,  as  hereafter  described,  in  a  lozenge.  Her  will  was  proved 
20th  April  1687  in  C.  P.  C.  They  had  issue :  1.  Anthony  Philpe,  living  1643  and 
1687.  2.  Thomas  Philpe,  his  mother's  executor  in  1687;  and  Elizabeth  Philpe, 
living  1643,  married  in  or  before  1672  to Lenton. 

II.  Elizabeth,  baptized  at  St.  Laurence's,  Reading,  in  1620,  living  unmarried 

III.  Anne,  living  a  spinster  1643  and  1651  ;  who  *'  died  a  maid,''  says  the

RicHAKD  Burren,  only  son  and  heir,  was  baptized  at  St.  Laurence's,  Read- 
ing,  in  1612,  and  removed  up  to  London,  where  he  became  a  merchant,  and 
married  Mary,  sister  of  Michael  Biddulph,  ancestor  of  Biddulph  of  Ledbury,  co. 
Heref.  and  dau.  of  Anthony  Biddulph,  of  Wood  Street,  London,  merchant,  citizen

Elmhurst,  co.  Stafford,  Bart,  and  third  sou  of  Simon  Biddulph,  Esq.  of  Elmhurst,  co. 
Stafford,  by  Joyce  his  wife,  daughter  of  Richard  Floyer,  Esq.  of  Uttoxeter,  co. 
Stafford,  and  directly  descended  from  tlie  ancient  house  of  Biddulph,  of  Biddulph, 
CO.  Stafford,  where  the  family  had  been  seated  from  the  time  of  the  Conquest.  Her 
arms  were  "  Vert,  an  eagle  displayed  argent,"  for  Biddulph,  quartering  Overton, 
"  Argent,  a  cross  formee  gules,"  and  Greenway,"  Argent,  a  chevron  debruised  be- 
tween three  cross-crosslets  fitchee  sable."  Her  mother  was  Elizabeth,  daughter  of 
Robert  Palmer,  Esq.  an  alderman  of  Loudon,  by  his  wife  Mary,  daughter  of  -^— - 
Cradock  of  Staffordshire.  Anthony  Biddulph,  her  father,  though  he  had  six 
children,  two  sons,  Robert  and  Michael,  and  four  daughters,  Elizabeth  wife  of 
Henry  Crispe,  Joyce  wife  of  Richard  Wynne,  Mary  wife  of  Richard  Burren, 
and  Sarah,  gave  each  of  his  daughters  1 ,600/.  on  her  marriage,  (a  considerable  for- 
tune, two  centuries  ago,  for  ladies  with  surviving  brothers)  ;  as  appears  by  the  will 
of  Anthony  Biddulph  dated  11  Aug.  1651,  and  proved  in  C.  P.  C.  28th  Oct.  1651. 
Richard  Burren  made  his  will  14th  Oct.  1651,  "  by  reason,"  says  he,  "  of  the 
dangerous  times  in  which  I  live  ;  "  he  died  soon  after  aet,  about  40,  and  Mary  his 
widow  proved  his  will,  30th  Dec.  1651,  in  the  Prerogative  Court  of  Canterbury. 
His  issue  by  her  were, 

I.  Richard,  who  died  young,  v.  p. 

II.  Anthony,  heir  to  his  father. 

I.  Mary,  married  to  Mr.  Thomas  Spencer,  of  London,  linen-draper,  arid  living

60  THE    FAMILY    OF    HODILOW    OF 

death  of  liis  lather  in  law  Hodilow,  and  lived  latterly  at 
Hampstead.  In  1726  his  wife's  maternal  cousin,  Edward 
Honywood,  Esq.  of  Hampstead,  leaves  him  a  mourning  ring. 
Anthony  Burren  attended  meetings  of  the  Mercers'  Company 
(of  which  he  was  free)  down  to  1728,  and  in  1731  was  a 
member  of  the  Court  of  Assistants  of  the  Russia  Company. 
In  this  last  year  he  died,  within  a  few  days  of  the  80th  anni- 
versary of  his  birthday,  and  was  buried  at  Hampstead  1 6th 
Sept.  1731.  By  Susan  Hodilow  this  gentleman  had  issue  two 
sons  and  nine  daughters : 

1.  Richard  Burren,  of  St.  Catharine  Cree's,  London^ 
baptized  12  Aug.  1690  at  St.  Dunstan's  in  the  East,  Lon- 
don. This  gentleman,  however,  died  unmarried,  intestate, 
and  embarrassed,  about  1739,  ast.  49,  and  letters  of  admi- 
nistration to  his  effects  were  granted  by  C.  P.  C.  to  Nicho- 
las Newton,  one  of  his  creditors,  in  1739. 

By  his  death  his  six  surviving  sisters  then  became  co- 
heiresses of  the  Burren,  Hodilow,  and  Pycheford  families. 

2.  x\nthony  Burren,  baptized  12  Feb.  1694  at  St.  Dun- 
stan's in  the  East ;  but  he  died  early  s.  p. 

born  about  Sept.  1651,  and  receives  mention  in  his  father's  will,  though  then 
quite  an  infant.  He  was  brought  up  by  his  mother,  and  was  apprenticed  to  William 
Nutt,  of  London,  merchant  and  citizen,  and  a  member  of  the  Mercers'  Company  ; 
the  freedom  of  which  was  conferred  upon  Anthony  Burren  5th  March  1679-80. 

At  the  London  Visitation  made  in  1687,  Anthony  Burren,  then  resident  in  Great 
Tower  Ward,  St.  Dunstan's  in  the  East,  recorded  his  pedigree,  and  arms  of  "  Paly 
of  six,  argent  and  gules,  on  a  chief  sable  three  lozenges  or."  He  was  then  a 
widower,  s.  p.  s.  and  of  the  age  of  35  years  ;  but  had  had  to  wife  Anne,  daughter  of 
Richard  Cleaver,  of  Norton,  co.  Herts,  granddaughter  and  coheir  it  seems  (with 
her  sister  Philadelphia,  wife  of  John  Sayer,  Esq.  of  the  Inner  Temple)  of  Richard 

Cleaver,  Esq.  senior,  lord  of  the  manor  of  Norton  aforesaid,  and  widow  of 

Courteen,  Esq.  of  London  ;  which  lady  had  died  6  June  1684,  and  been  buried 
with  heraldic  honours  under  the  superintendence  of  Russell  the  undertaker  ;  the 
arms  of  Burren  being  used,  as  already  described.  Her  arms  are  doubtful ;  but  her 
only  child  was  named 

I.  Anne,  and  died  an  infant  in  or  before  August  1687. 

The  record  of  Anthony  Burren's  pedigree  bears  date  at  Bakers'  Hall,  Harp  Lane, 
Wednesday  3rd  Aug.  1687.  In  the  following  March  he  married,  as  mentioned  in 
the  text,  Susanna  Hodilow,  and  had  a  numerous  family  by  her  ;  the  majority  of 
which  children  were  baptized  at  St.  Dunstan's  in  the  East.  In  consequence,  how- 
ever, of  this  connection,  he  subsequently  removed  to  Hampstead,  and  he,  and  his 
immediate  progeny,  lived,  died,  and  were  buried  there,  as  noticed  above. 


1.  Elizabeth  Burren,  bapt.  1  Feb.  1688  at  St.  Dunstan's 
in  the  East.     Of  her  there  is  no  further  record. 

2.  Mary  Barren,  baptized  at  tiie  said  church  8tli  Sept. 
1691 ;  who  dying  young  was  buried  there  31st  October 

3.  Susanna  Burren,  senior  of  the  coheiresses  in  1739. 
This  lady  was  baptized  at  St.  Dunstan's  in  the  East  20th 
Oct.  1692,  and  was  the  only  child  who  married.  On  the 
26th  Sept.  1728,  she  was  married  at  Hampstead,  (by  licence 
granted  24th  September  at  the  Bishop  of  London's  Office, 
Doctors'  Commons,)  to  Mr.  William  Barry,  of  the  sign  of 
the  Golden  Fleece,  Fleet  Street,  St.  Dunstan's  in  the  West, 
London,  woollen  draper,  citizen,  and  a  member  of  the 
Haberdashers'  Company  of  London,  by  purchase,  dated 
17th  March  1709.  This  William  Barry  was  born  in  1685, 
settled  in  London  about  1708,  purchased  freehold  property 
in  the  metropolis,  and  was  a  widower  at  the  time  of  his 
marriage  with  Susan  Burren  ;  though  his  first  wife's  name 
is  unrecorded.  He  was  connected  with  a  family  of  Saint 
John ;  and  on  very  strong  presumptive  evidence  was  di- 
rectly descended  from  the  attainted  family  of  Barry  feudal 
Baron  of  Rincorran,  co.  Cork,  in  the  kingdom  of  Ireland, 
which  forfeited  its  estates  in  the  time  of  the  Irish  Rebel- 
lion, 1641-2.  f     By  this  gentleman  (who  died  intestate,  set. 

f  Philip  Barry,  Feudal  Baron  of  Ri.vcorran,  near  Kinsale,  co.  Cork, 
(directly  descended  from  Philip  Barry  of  Rincorran,  who  was  summoned  to  Parlia- 
ment as  a  Baron  in  1302,  SOth  Edw.  I.)  forfeited  his  estates  in  the  Irish  Rebellion 
1641-2,  -which  were  conferred  on  the  Southwell  family  after  the  Restoration.  Philip 
Barry  was  alive,  however,  in  1656,  though  greatly  reduced  ;  and  had  issue  a  son 

William  Barry,  who  also   lived  in  reduced  circumstances,  but  married  and 

had  issue.    His  wife  was  no  doubt Barnet ;   grand-aunt  or   aunt  of  Mary, 

Joane,  and  Margaret  Bamet,  who  are  mentioned  as  cousins  in  the  will  of  Elinor 
Barry  hereafter  mentioned  in  1712-13.     His  son 

Philip  Barry,  grandson  of  the  attainted  Lord  of  Rincorran,  became  a  follower 
of  Mac  Carty  of  Carbery  it  appears,  and  thus  succeeded  in  marrying  into  that  noble 
house.  He  espoused  Elinor,  daughter  of  Charles  Mac  Carty  Reagh  of  Kilbritten, 
CO.  Cork,  Colonel  in  the  Army,  sister  not  only  of  Ellen,  wife  of  John  de  Courcy, 
21st  Lord  Kinsale  (and  thus  aunt  of  Almerick  Lord  Kinsale),  but  likewise  sister  of 
Catharine,  wife  of  Piercy  Saint  John,  Esq.  of  Culedonnell,  co.  Cork,  and  aunt  of 
her  children,  Piercy,  Charles,  and  Ellen  Saint  John  ;  in  consequence  of  which  re- 
lationship it  seems,  "  Saint  John''  remained  a  baptismal  name  in  the  family  de- 
scended from  WilliaiQ  Barry,  of  Fleet  Street,  who  married  Susan  Burren.

about  58,  27th  May  1743,  and  was  buried  at  Hampstead) 
Susanna  Burren,  who  administered  to  his  effects  June  1743, 
in  the  Prerogative  Court  of  Canterbury,  and  dying  his 
widow  19th  March  1745-6,  was  buried  beside  him  at 
Hampstead,  had  issue, 

1.  William  Barry,  eventually  heir  general  of  the 
Burrens,  Hodilows,  and  Pychefords.  He  was  born  13th 
Aug.  1739,  and  baptized  27th  Aug.  1729,  at  St.  Dun- 
stan's  in  the  West,  London.     He  was  brought  up  to  the 

Philip  Barry  is  known  to  have  had  issue  by  his  said  wife  ;  but  with  him  all  re- 
corded pedigrees  of  his  family  terminate  :  which  is  supposed  to  have  been  caused  by 
the  consequences  of  the  declining  fortunes  of  his  family.  It  is,  however,  almost 
certain  that  he  is  identifiable  with  one  Philip  Barry  who  was  living  very  aged,  and 
pursuing  the  humble  occupation  of  a  cooper  in  the  south  suburbs  of  Cork  in  1712. 
This  person  had  issue, 

I,  John  Barry,  who  was  latterly  of  Blarney  Lane,  St.  Mary's  Shandon  parish, 
Cork  city,  and  died  v.  p.  in  or  before  December  1704;  when  Grace  his  widow 
administered  to  his  effects  in  the  Consistory  Court  of  Cork.     He  had  issue 

1.  William  Barry,  of  whom  presently. 

2.  Philip  Barry,  living  1712, 

1.  Mary  Barry,  baptized  at  St.  Mary's  Shandon,  Cork,  30  Jan.  1687. 
I.  Elinor  Barry,  of  the  south  suburbs  of  Cork,  who  made  her  will  5th  February 

1712-3,  mentioning,  inter  alios,  her  cousins  Barnet ;  and  dying  unmarried  soon 

after,  it  was  proved  1712-3  in  the  Consistory  Court  of  Cork. 

IL  Juliana  Barry,  wife  of Walsh  1712-3. 

IIL  Margaret  Barry,  married  to  Thomas  Sullivan,   of  Blarney  Lane,  Cork. 

brogue  maker.     Both  of  them  were  alive  in  1712-3. 

William  Barry  (son  of  John  and  grandson  of  Philip)  is  proved  to  have  been 
living  in  1712;  and  on  the  following  strong  presumptive  evidence  was  William 
Barry  of  Fleet  Street,  London,  who  married  the  coheiress  of  Burren  :  1st.  The  said 
William  Barry,  of  Fleet  Street,  was  born  in  1685,  and  by  the  baptismal  register  of 
Mary  Barry,  it  is  clear  that  John  Barry's  other  children  were  born  about  that  year  ; 
but  her's  is  the  only  one  recorded  at  St.  Mary's  Shandon,  Cork,  which  makes  it 
probable  that  the  baptismal  register  of  one  William,  son  of  John  and  Dorothy 
Barry,  which  occurs  at  St.  Bride's,  Dublin,  14th  Aug.  1685,  refers  to  the  said 
William,  as  it  is  known  not  to  relate  to  the  Dublin  Barrys.  If  this  be  the  case, 
John  Barry  must  have  been  twice  married. 

2ndly.  Though  William  Barry,  of  Fleet  Street  is  known  by  unquestionable  tra- 
ditions to  have  descended  from  a  noble  house,  after  investigation  of  an  unusually 
laborious  and  extensive  nature,  Barry  of  Rincorran  alone  affords  a  person  identifi- 
able with  him. 

3rdly.  William  Barry,  of  Fleet  Street,  was  connected  with  a  family  of  St.  John, 
and  the  relationship  of  the  Barrys  of  Rincorran  with  a  family  of  that  name  has 
already  been  shown.  This  fact,  and  their  marrying  into  a  "Barnet"  family, 
which  surname  was  afterwards  assumed  by  William,  son  of  him  of  Fleet  Street, 
almost  stamp  this  presumption  with  proof. 

Barry  of  Rincorran  bore,  "  Barry  of  six,  argent  and  gules.'' 


medical  profession,  and  went  abroad,  for  the  purpose 
(it  is  believed)  of  taking  his  degree  of  M.D.  in  a  con- 
tinental university,  which,  however,  he  never  prose- 
cuted ;  but  returned  to  England,  assumed  the  name  of 
"Barnet,"  and  was  twice  married:  first,  on  the  3rd  Oc-

administration  to  his  father's  effects  in  the  Prerog.  Court 
of  Canterbury.  He  married,  but  died  s.  p.  aet.  75,  and  was

His  wife  predeceased  him  and  was  interred  elsewhere. 

1.  Susanna  Barry,  of  Queen  Square,  afterwards  of 
Gloucester  Street,  St.  George  the  Martyr's,  London. 
She  was  born  23rd  March,  and  baptized  5th  April  1732 
at  her  father's  house  in  Fleet  Street.  She  made  her  will

two  small  legacies  to  her  brother  William,  and  her  neice 
in  law  Mrs.  Bayley  of  North  Allerton,  co.  York.  She 
died  unmarried,  set.  68,  7th  Jan.  ]  800,  and  was  interred

9.  Margaretta  Burren,  the  last  surviving  coheiress  of  the 
Burren  family.    This  lady  was  born  circa  1703,  and  resided 


with  her  sister  Anne  at  Clerkenwell,  co.  Middlesex,  and  these 
two  ladies,  on  the  decease,  in  1764,  of  their  maternal  cousin 
once  removed,  Frazer  Honywood,  Esq.  of  Hampstead,  the 
great  London  banker,  put  in  claims  for  a  share  of  the  legacy 
left  by  him  to  be  divided  amongst  his  relations ;  and,  proving 
their  kinship,  obtained  a  part  of  that  bequest  1764 — 1770.  e 

Margaretta  Burren  made  her  will  2nd  Sept.  1776,  desiring 
burial  at  Hampstead  ;  and,  inter  alia,  leaves  to  her  nephew 
William  Barry,  afterwards  Barnet,  "  my  grandfather  Hodi- 
low's  ring  with  his  coat  of  arms  on  it,  and  my  old  silver 
watch  ; "  and  to  Anne,  his  wife,  her  gold  watch,  &c.  She 
also  leaves  to  her  niece  Susanna  Barry  "  her  own  family  pic- 
tures; "  and  to  her  nephew,  Saint  John  Barry,  her  pair  of  sil- 
ver salvers,  &c.  She  appoints  her  said  nephew,  William  Barry 
or  Barnet,  then  of  Easingwold,  co.  York,  sole  executor  and 
residuary  legatee,  and  after  making  a  short  codicil,  29th  Oct. 
1778,  died  unmarried  6th  May  1784,  in  her  82nd  year,  and 
was  buried  1 6th  May  at  Hampstead,  where  a  horizontal  tomb 
remains  with  inscriptions  to  the  memory  of  herself  and  her 
sisters.  William  Barnet  went  up  to  London  to  attend  the 
funeral,  and  prove  the  will ;  which  last  he  transacted  in  the 
Prerogative  Court  of  Canterbury;  and  the  probate  granted 
to  him  on  the  occasion,  as  well  as  the  seal-ring  containing  the 
Hodilow  arms,  have  ever  since  remained  with  his  posterity, 
and  are  now  possessed  by  his  great-grandsons.  But  the  old 
family  portraits,  bequeathed  to  Susanna  Barry,  passed  with 
the  residue  of  her  property  to  her  personal  friends  in  London ; 
they  were  thus  lost  to  the  family,  and  have  never  since  been

Anthony  Hodilow,  of  St.  Martin's  Ongar,  London,  citizen 

and  flaxman,  however,  became  heir  male  of  the  family  on  the 

death  of  Richard  Hodilow,  his  half-brother,  in   1 698  ;    being 

K  After  the  death  of  Frazer  Honywood,  Esq.  upwards  of  four  hundred  persons 
put  in  claims  for  a  share  of  this  celebrated  bequest ;  not  astonishing  when  it  is 
considered  how  very  numerous  were  his  paternal  relatives.  The  subject  was  long 
agitated  in  Chancery,  and  was  not  finally  settled  for  many  years  after.  The  Miss 
Burrens,  however,  obtained  their  share  of  the  legacy  under  an  interlocutory  deeree 
dated  1769,  and  .\ane  Burren  notices  it  in  her  will  dated  1770.  (Vide  Ambler'i

66  THE    FAMILY    OF    HODILOW,   OF 

tenth  son  of  Arthur  Hodilow,  of  Grafton  Underwood ;  and  the 
fourth  and  youngest  by  his  second  wife,  Lady  Susan  Humfrey, 
widow  of  Sir  Thomas  Humfrey,  of  Swebston,  Knt.  and  daughter 
of  George  Pilkington,  Esq.  of  Stanton  le  Dale,  in  Derbyshire, 
and  Barston,  in  Leicestershire.  This  Anthony  Hodilow  was  his 
mother's  favourite  son,  and  is  appointed  her  executor  in  her  will 

He  had  settled  in  London,  in  the  flax  trade,  and  married 

widow   of Waldoe,   mother  of  James  "Waldoe,  gent. 

and  whose  deceased  husband  was  closely  related  to  Sir  Edward 
Waldoe,  of  Pinner,  in  Middlesex,  Knt.  (whose  daughter  and 
eldest  coheiress  Grace  married  first  Sir  Nicholas  Wolslenholme, 
Bart,  and  secondly  William  Lord  Hunsdon,)  and  Timothy 
Waldoe,  brother  of  which  Sir  Edward,  was  grandfather  of  Sir 
Timothy  Waldoe,  of  Hever,  in  Kent,  Knt.  The  Waldoes  were 
then  a  very  good  family,  and  were  established  in  England  temp. 
Elizabeth  by  one  of  the  name,  who  had  migrated  hither  from 
France,  to  escape  the  persecution  of  the  Duke  D' Alva ;  and  he  descended  from  the  renowned  Peter  Waldo,  a  merchant  at 
Lyons,  who,  applying  himself  to  Theology,  founded  the  sect 
called  the  "  Waldenses,"  in  the  twelfth  century.  The  arms  of 
the  Waldoes  were,  "  Or,  a  bend  azure  between  three  leopard's 
heads  gules ; "  but  the  writer  has  been  quite  unable  to  ascertain 
the  maiden  name  of  Mrs.  Anthony  Hodilow.^'  Anthony  Hodi- 
low, having  administered  to  the  effects  of  his  brother  Henry  in 
1696-7,  made  his  will  11th  May  1711,  leaving  his  property 
equally  between  his  children ;  speaks  of  his  late  wife,  and  leaves 
her  son  James  Waldoe  one  shilling.     He  appoints  his  two  sons 

^  Sir  Edward  Waldoe  had  another  brother,  who  resided  at  Harrow,  in  Middlesex  ; 
and  it  is  not  impossible  that  he  was  the  first  husband  of  Mrs.  Hodilow.  A  James 
Waldoe,  Esq.  was  buried  at  Harrow  1756,  (?  Mrs.  Hodilow's  son,)  as  was  also  Sir 
Edward  Waldoe  1707  ;  and  a  Charles  Waldoe,  Esq.  in  1790.  Vide  Lysons'  London, 
vol.  ii.  pp.  574 — 579.  A  Mr.  Isaac  Waldoe,  before  the  year  1773,  gave  "  a  silver 
chalice  for  the  use  of  sick  persons  in  private  houses  who  should  be  desirous  to  re- 
ceive the  holy  sacrament,"  to  the  church  of  AUhallows,  Bread  Street.  Vide  Mal- 
colm's Lond.  Rediv.  vol.  ii.  p.  15. 

See  a  brief  and  imperfect  notice  of  the  Waldoe  family  in  Hasted's  Kent,  vol.  i. 
pp.  248,  397.  The  writer  has  used  every  endeavour  to  discover  a  pedigree  of  the 
family;  but  it  does  not  appear  that  anything  save  "scraps  and  patches"  are  in 
existence,  relative  to  the  Waldoes.  Of  the  celebrated  Peter  Waldo,  of  Lyons,

executors,  and  dying  soon  after,  they  proved  the  will  in  the 
Prerogative  Court  of  Canterbury,  8th  June  1711.  By  his  said 
wife  he  left  issue, 

I.  Thomas  Hodilow,  his  heir. 

II.  John  Hodilow,  heir  to  his  brother. 

I.  Elizabeth  Hodilow,  married  first,  v.  p.,  to  Mr.  John 
Crispe,  or  Cripps,  a  member  of  the  numerous  Middlesex  and 
Kentish  family  of  the  name,  who  bore,  "  Argent,  on  a  chev- 
ron sable  five  horseshoes  or."  He  was  her  husband  in  1711, 
and  had  by  her  James  Crispe  and  Frances  Crispe,  mentioned 
in  the  will  of  Thomas  Hodilow  1725.  She  married  secondly, 
in  or  before  1725,  one  Mr.  John  Seagood,  ("  Azure,  two  bars 
wavy  ermine  between  three  hands  erect  argent;  ")  and  they 
were  living,  husband  and  wife,  1725  and  1727. 

II.  Katharine  Hodilow,  unmarried  1711,  who  wedded,  be- 
fore or  in  1725,  Mr.  James  Lumley.  Lumley  of  Middlesex 
bore,  "  Argent,  a  fesse  gules  between  three  parrots  proper, 
collared  of  the  second ;  " — the  same  coat  as  the  great  Northern 
Lumleys,  whose  high  nobility  it  is  needless  to  notice  here. 
Thomas  Hodilow,  elder  son  and  heir,  was  of  age  1711,  and 

made  his  will  8th  Dec.  1725,  styling  himself  of  "  Thames  Street, 
London,  yeoman."  He  leaves  to  his  sister  Elizabeth  Seagood, 
for  life,  his  farm  at  Little  Cornall,  in  Suffolk  ;  after  her  death, 
the  same  to  go  to  his  nephews  John  and  Thomas  Hodilow,  and 
their  heirs,  in  fee.  To  his  sister  Katharine  Lumley  he  leaves 
his  lands  at  Sudbury,  in  Suffolk,  for  life ;  after  her  death,  the 
same  to  descend  to  his  niece  Elizabeth  Hodilow.  He  mentions 
also  his  niece  Frances  Crispe,  James  Crispe,  &c.  and  his  cousin 
Mr.  Edwardes;  as  well  as  James  Waldoe,  gent,  his  (testator's) 
brother  ;  and  the  wife  of  the  said  James  Waldoe.  He  appoints  his 
sisters,  Seagood  and  Lumley,  executrixes  ;  and  dying  soon  after, 
s.  p.,  they,  by  the  respective  descriptions  of  "  Elizabeth,  wife  of 
John  Seagood,"  and  •'  Katharine,  wife  of  James  Lumley," 
proved  his  will  in  the  Prerogative  Court  of  Canterbury,  5th  Jan. 

John  Hodilow,  his  brother,  thereupon  became  his  heir  at 
law.  He  was  a  citizen  and  girdler  of  London ;  but  only  sur- 
vived his  brother  about  two  years.  He  married  a  lady  named 
Hannah,  but  of  what  family  is  unknown;  and  made  his  will,  27 
Nov.  1727,  meniicning  his  three  children,  and  bequeaths  to  them

68  THE    FAMILY    OF    HODILOW    OF 

divers  articles,  specifying  his  silver  snuff-box,  and  tobacco-box  ; 
his  silver  buckles,  and  frold  ring.  He  leaves  his  real  property  to 
his  wife,  and  appoints  her  sole  executrix.  Will  attested  by  John 
Seagood  and  others.  Proved  in  C.  P.  C.  by  Hannah  Hodilow, 
widow,  and  executrix,  14th  Feb.  1727-8.  They  had  issue,  two 
sons  and  one  daughter, 

I.  John  Hodilow.  II.  Thomas  Hodilow.  Both  living 
1725  and  1727,  when  they  had  the  remainder  and  reversion 
of  the  Little  Cornall  estate,  co.  Suffolk,  left  them  by  their 
uncle  Thomas  Hodilow. 

I.  Elizabeth  Hodilow,  who  had  the  remainder  and  rever- 
sion of  the  Sudbury  estate,  co.  Suffolk,  left  her  by  her  uncle 
Thomas,  in  1725,  and  was  alive  in  1727. 
John  Hodilow,   the  eldest  son  of  John,  became  heir  of  the 
family  at  his  father's  death.     Every  endeavour,  however,  to  as- 
certain the  destinies  of  him,  his  brother,  and  sister,  the  last  sur- 
vivors of  the  house  of  Hodilow,  has  been  made,   but  unsuccess- 
fully.    Nothing  is  known,   or  recollected  of  them,  where  their 
estates  were  situate  in  Suffolk.     The  Prerogative  Court  of  Can- 
terbury has  in  vain  been  searched  for  their  wills,   &c. ;  and  it 
is  probable  that  the  only  clue  to  intelligence  of  them  would  be 
through  their  existing  representatives. 

So  much  for  the  elder  house  of  Hodilow.  We  now  proceed 
to  the  younger  branch,  who,  though  highly  respectable,  were 
only  substantial  farmers  and  yeomen. 

Hodilow  of  Histon  and  Impington,  in  Cambridgeshire. 

John  Hodilow,  of  Histon,  in  Cambridgeshire,  second  son 
of  the  settler  in  England,  and  brother  of  Robert  Hodilow,  of 
Chettisham,  ancestor  of  the  family  we  have  just  ceased  treating 
of,  lived  in  the  early  part  of  Henry  the  Eighth's  reign,  and 
held  freehold  and  copyhold  lands  at  Histon.  He  occurs  as  a 
witness  to  the  will  of  Margaret  Raven,  of  Histon,  dated  4th  Feb. 
1520,  and  also  attests  that  of  Richard  Steward,  of  Histon,  dated 
Dec.  20,  1541.  (These  wills  being  both  proved  in  the  Regis- 
try of  the  Bishop  of  Ely  at  Cambridge.  Vide  Cole's  MSS.  vol. 
Ix.  Add.  MSS.  Brit.  Mus.  No.  5861.)  John  Hodilow,  of  His- 
ton, made  his  own  will,  10th  April  1542,  "  hole  of  mynde  and 
of  good  remembraunce/'  but  "  seeke  in  bodye."    Bequeaths  his 


soul  to  God  ;  and  twelve  pence  to  his  ghostly  father  i'or  his 
paynes  ;  3s.  and  id.  to  the  reparation  of  Hislon  church.  To  his 
wife,  the  house  he  bought  of  Thomas  Fowler,  and  the  land  per- 
taining to  the  same,  for  the  term  of  her  life ;  remainder  to  his 
daughters,  equally  to  be  divided  betwixt  them.  Also  to  his  wife 
his  copyhold  estate,  held  of  the  "  other  lordship^'  for  life,  remain- 
der to  William  his  son.  All  his  household  stuff  to  his  wife,  his 
best  horse,  one  couple  of  oxen,  and  three  '*'  mylche  beasts,"  ten 
ewes,  ten  lambs,  and  six  lamb  hoggs,  to  his  wife.  To  William, 
his  son,  the  house  he  (testator)  dwelt  in,  and  the  land  belonging 
thereto  ;  as  well  as  his  freehold  land  in  Chesterton  Fields.  \'ari- 
ous  cattle,  and  his  implements  of  husbandry,  to  William  his  son. 
Legacies,  chiefly  of  cattle,  to  his  four  daughters  and  to  his  ser- 
vants. His  wife  and  William,  his  son,  residuary  legatees,  and 
the  latter  executor.  Witnesses,  Syr  Robert  Chykering,  Vycar, 
Henry  Mounsey,  John  Stuard  the  elder,  Thomas  Sterne,  and 
William  Hall ;  whom  the  testator  constituted  supervisors.  He 
died  soon  after,  and  his  will  was  proved  at  Cambridge,  in  the 
Registry  of  the  Bishop  of  Ely,  22  April  1542.  He  had  married 
before  1.520,  though  his  wife's  name  is  unrecorded,  and  left  issue 
by  her,  one  son  and  four  daughters, 

I.  William  Hodilow,  his  heir,  of  whom  presently. 

I.  Emma  Hodilow. 

II.  Joane  Hodilow. 

III.  Katharine  Hodilow. 

IV.  Elizabeth  Hodilow. 

All  of  whom  are  legatees  in  their  fathei^'s  will  1542,  and 

also  in  that  of  their  uncle    Robert  Hodilow,  of  Chettisham, 

Jan.  1540-1 ;  who  also  mentions  their  father  to  be  his  brother. 

William  Hodilow,  of  Histon,  only  son  and  heir,  was  born 

in  or  before  1521,  being  of  age  1542,  when  he  proved  his  father's 

will.     This  person  is  known  to  have  married,  and  left  issue; 

but  the  parish  register  of  Histon  not  extending  to  the  period  at 

which  he  lived,  details  of  his  issue  are  not  known.     Nevertheless 

he  had  one  son  (probably  among  others,  but  if  so,  they  and  their 

progeny  have  long  since  passed  away),  viz. 

I.  John  Hodilow.     This 

John  Hodilow  removed  to  Impington  near  Cambridge,  and 

receives  mention,  ivs  "  cousin,^'  in  the  will  of  Joseph  Hodilow,  of 

70  THE    FAMILY    OF    HODILOW    OF 

Cambridge,   1585.    See  ante.     He,  John,  was  twice  married: 

first,  before  1576,   to  Anne ,  who  dying,   was  buried  at 

Impington  Sept.  1589.     By  her  he  had, 

I.  Robert  Hodilow,  heir  to  his  father. 

II.  William  Hodilow,  baptized  April  1581,  at  Impington; 
and  buried  the  same  month  and  year  also  at  Impington. 

III.  Thomas  Hodilow,  baptized  Jan.  1585-6,  buried  there 
Jan.  1586-7. 

IV.  William  Hodilow,  second  so  christened.  He  died 
young,  and  was  buried  at  Impington  1586. 

I.  Beatrice  Hodilow,  baptized  Dec.  1578  at  Impinijton, 
married  there,  5th  May  1603,  to  Robert  Matthew,  or  May- 
thew:  and  both  of  them  were  living  1614. 

'  o 

After  the  decease  of  his  first  wife,  John  Hodilow  married  se- 
condly, at  Impington,  Jan.  1589-90,  Margaret  Stokes,  alias 
Scott,  of  Histon  and  Impington ;  who  was  apparently  sister  to 
John  Scott,  of  Histon,  and  William  Scott,  of  Sellson,  co.  Cam- 
bridge. Attaining  a  good  old  age,  John  Hodilow  made  his  will, 
being  sick,  20th  Aug.  in  the  7th  year  of  his  "  dread  Sofrayne  " 
James  I.  (1609.)  He  leaves  pecuniary  legacies  and  household 
furniture  to  his  children  then  living,  and  appoints  Margaret,  his 
wife,  executrix.  He  republished  his  will  10th  August  1614; 
mentions  his  copyhold  lands  in  Impington,  and,  among  others,  a 
close  called  Burrow-field,  the  crop  of  all  which  lands,  save  Bur- 
row-field, he  leaves  to  Margaret  his  wife,  leaving  that  crop  to  his 
son  Robert  to  pay  the  lord's  fee  on  his  admittance.  He  dying, 
was  buried  at  Impington,  3rd  Oct.  1617  ;  will  proved  8th  Nov. 
1617,  in  the  Consistory  Court  of  the  Bishop  of  Ely.  By  Mar- 
garet his  second  wife,  who  survived  him,  he  had  further  issue, 
sons  and  daughters, 

V.  Henry  Hodilow,  of  whom  hereafter,  as  successor  at 
Impington  to  Robert  his  half-brother, 

VI.  Edward  Hodilow,  baptized  at  Impington,  March  1605; 
living  there  1614,  and  buried  there  17th  June  1622,  unmarried^ 

II.  Mary  Hodilow,  baptized  at  Impington,  August  1598 ; 
living  unmarried  1614;  but  married  there,  12th  Jan.  1616,  to 
John  Kn  .  .  .  (?  Knapp,)  of  Alx . . .  ton,  in  Essex. 

III.  Alice  Hodilow,  baptized  at  Impington,  Dec.  1602, 
livh)g  unmarried  1614.     She  espoused,  24th  Feb.  1626,  John 


Chaplin,  of  Impington,  of  a  very  respectable  old  Cambridge- 
shire family,  and  had  by  him  a  very  numerous  posterity. 

IV.  Jane  Hodilovv,  baptized  at  Impington,  Nov.  1608,  liv- 
ing unmarried  1614.  Of  her  nothing  further  is  known. 
Robert  Hodii.ow,  of  Impington,  eldest  son  and  heir  of 
John,  by  his  first  wife,  was  baptized  at  Impington,  June  1576; 
and  succeeded  to  his  father's  copyhold  lands  there  1617  ;  being 
a  legatee  in  his  father's  will  1614.  He,  however,  died  s.  p.  £et. 
60,  (and  probably  a  bachelor,)  and  was  buried  at  Impington, 
3rd  June  1636. 

Henry  Hodilow,  of  Impington,  his  half-brother,  and  son 
of  John  Hodilow  by  his  second  wife,  then  became  representative 
of  the  family.  He  was  baptized  at  Impington,  Nov.  1595  ;  living 
1614,  and  was  twice  married.     First,  before  1619,  to  Elizabeth 

,  by  whom  he  had  several  children ;  of  whom  presently. 

He  wedded  secondly  at  Impington,  25  March  1659,  Mary 
Spencer,  of  that  place ;  but  by  her,  who  dying,  was  buried  there 
26th  July  1664,  he,  not  surviving  her  a  month,  had  no  issue- 
He  was  buried  at  Impington,  14th  August  1G64. 

Henry  Hodilow  made  his  will  4th  Aug.  1664  (16th  Car.  II.) 
on  his  deathbed.  He  names  no  children,  all  apparently  being 
deceased ;  but  leaves  to  his  grandchildren.  He  appears  to  have 
been  a  person  of  strong  religious  feelings;  and,  though  a  farmer, 
evidently  a  man  of  worth.  He  appoints  Rowland  Pateman,  of 
Histon,  in  Cambridgeshire,  his  executor;  and  dying  soon  after- 
wards, his  will  was  proved,  30th  August  1664,  in  the  Registry 
of  the  Bishop  of  Ely.     He  had  had  issue  by  his  first  wife, 

I.  John  Hodilow,  baptized  at  Impington  27th  June  1619. 
He  died  young,  and  was  buried  there  30th  Aug.  1620. 

II.  John  Hodilow  (second  so  christened),  baptized  at  Imp- 
ington, 23rd  Jan,  1624;  who  was  married  there,  v.  p.  24th 
June  1650,  to  Elizabeth  Chiseman,  Cisseman,  or  Clieeseman, 
of  a  numerous  family  at  Impington.  He  died  23rd  Dec.  1658, 
V.  p.,  leaving  by  her,  who  died  23rd  Feb.  1660,  only  two 
daughters,  his  coheiresses. 

1.  Alice  Hodilow.    2.  Elizabeth  Hodilow,  of  whom 

III.  William  Hodilow,  bapt.  at  Impington,  30th  Sept.  1627* 
He  died  in  his  youth,  and  was  interred  there  21st  April  1639. 

72  THE    FAMILY    OF    HODtLOW. 

IV.  Thomas  Hodilovv,  baptized  at  the  same  place,  20th 
Dec.  1629;  but,  dying  young,  was  buried  there  22nd  Feb. 

I.  Anna  Hodilow,  baptized  at  Impington,  25th  April  1621. 

She  was  married  to Pateman  (?  Rowland  Pateman,  of 

Histon,  in  Cambridgeshire),  by  whom  she  had  two  daughters, 
Alice  and  Anne  Pateman,  both  minors  in  1 664. 
Alice  Hodilow  and  Elizabeth  Hodilow,  sole  daughters 
and  coheirs  of  Henry  Hodilow,  became  co-representatives  of  the 
family  on  the  death  of  their  grandfather  John  Hodilow  in  1664, 
who,  however,  leaves  them  a  mere  trifle  by  his  will,  bequeathing 
the  bulk  of  his  property  to  the  Patemans.  Alice  Hodilow  was 
baptized  at  Impington,  11th  May  1651 : — Elizabeth  Hodilow  was 
born  13th  June  1656;  and  they  are  the  last  of  this  family  of 
Hodilow  of  whom  there  is  any  record.  Whether  they  married 
or  not,  is  unknown ;  but  it  is  certain  that  they  were  not  buried, 
under  the  name  of  Hodilow,  at  Impington.  This  branch  of  the 
Hodilows,  though  mere  farmers,  were  highly  respectable,  and 
constantly  appear  as  churchwardens  of  Impington  during  the 
period  of  their  residence  there.

There  can  be  no  doubt  that  it  is  as  much  the  duty  of  the 
historian  of  a  town,  as  of  a  county,  to  detail  the  genealogy  as 
well  as  the  topography  of  his  district.  The  chief  families  in  a 
town  are  necessarily  of  as  much  importance  there,  as  are  in  a 
county  its  leading  aristocracy,  and  sometimes  of  infinitely  greater 
weight  and  influence.  Still  how  very  few  town  historians  enter 
upon  pedigrees.  They  think  it  no  labour  to  narrate  the  most 
trifling  events,  and  describe  the  most  insignificant  estates  and 
edifices,  while  they  scarcely  ever  trouble  the  reader  with  two 
generations  of  a  family  together.  If  an  eminent  man  be  born 
in  the  place,  he  is  merely  noticed  as  a  native ;  but  as  for  informa- 
tion on  his  ancestry  or  posterity,  it  must  not  be  searched  for 

Brewster's  History  of  Stockton  upon  Tees  is  an  excellent 
work,  but  falls  within  the  above  description;  though  perhaps 
it  contains  more  scattered  genealogical  intelligence  than  many 
other  works  of  the  same  pretensions.  The  following  compila- 
tions, however,  may  be  found  some  addition  to  its  genealogical 
contents ;  »  for  though  imperfect  they  are  original. 

During  the  last  three  centuries  the  most  noted  families  in 
Stockton  were 

1st.  The  BuRDONs.  This  family  was  ascendant  even  in  the 
reign  of  Edward  IV.,  and  continued  so  during  the  16th  and 
17th  centuries.  It  furnished  as  many  mayors,  perhaps,  as  any 
family  in  the  borough ;  and  owned  several  spacious  houses  in  the 
place.  Its  pedigree  is  detailed  in  Surtees'  Durham  and  Burke's 
Commoners,  the  family  having  purchased  Castle  Eden  in  1758, 
and  become  seated  there.    The  following  points,  however,  may 

•  The  writer  of  this  article  possesses  an  ancient  MS.  volume  (formerly  the  pro- 
perty of  John  Russell  Rowntree,  Esq.  and  previously  of  the  Bunting  family),  on  the 
Antiquities  and  Topography  of  Stockton  on  Tees.  Brewster's  History  does  not  in- 
clude its  contents  ;  nor  is  it  known  that  any  of  the  above  matter  appears  in  Brewster. 


increase  the  information  given  regarding  the  younger  branch, 
which  merged  in  Webster. 

Henry  Burdon  of  Stockton,  mariner,  (brother  of  the  an- 
cestor of  the  Castle  Eden  branch,)  bought  tenements  in  Stock- 
ton of  James  Kitching  1692,  by  indenture  of  feoffment.     He 

married  Elizabeth ,  made  his  will   1712,  appointing  his 

nephew,  the  Rev.  Rowland  Burdon,  his  executor,  and  died  the 
same  year  it  seems,  as  the  probate  of  his  will  bears  the  same  date. 
By  his  said  wife  he  left  a  son, 

Rowland  Burdon,  who  succeeded  his  father,  and  married 

Mary,  daughter  of Lackenby.     He  made  his  will  1775, 

proved  1778,  and  died  leaving  an  only  child, 

Mary  Burdon,  his  sole  heiress,  who  married  William  Web- 
ster, Esq.  of  Whitby,  co.  York,  and  had  issue. 

The  ancient  mansion  of  the  Burdons  was  that  old  house  in 
the  borough  of  Stockton,  known  as  the  "  Blue  Posts."  They 
subsequently  owned  a  spacious  house  (afterwards,  it  is  believed, 
the  property  of  W.  Hylton  Longstaff)  with  the  date  164.. 
upon  it.  But  the  former  had  been  in  their  family  from  the  time 
of  Henry  VII. 

2nd.  The  Lamberts.  This  family  obtained  a  grant  of  coat 
armour  of  "  Gules,  a  chevron  ermine  between  three  lambs  pas- 
sant argent,"  and  flourished  temp.  Jac.  I. 

Thomas  Lambert,  to  whom  Ralph  Bunting  surrendered 
copyholds  within  Stockton  manor,  2nd  April,  39  Eliz.  was  mayor 
of  Stockton  1616  and  1625.  He  was  styled  "  Senior"  in  10  Car.  I. 
and  appears  to  have  had  issue  five  sons, 

I who  died  v.  p.  leaving  an  only  child. 

1.  Anne  Lambert,  grand-daughter  and  heiress  to  Tho- 
mas, as  appears  by  copy  of  Court  Roll  dated  17  July,  19 
Car.  I.     She  was  a  borough-holder  of  Stockton  in  1647. 

II.  Thomas,  a  borough-holder  in  1647. 

III.  Richard  Lambert,  living  temp.  Car.  I, 

IV.  William  Lambert,  living  temp.  Car.  I. 

V.  John  Lambert,  who  kept  a  bakehouse  in  Stockton  1647. 
One  of  these  persons  was  no  doubt  father  of  that 

Lambert,  mariner,  who  married  Isabel,  widow  of 

John  Bunting  of  S.  before  1674.     There  was  also  a 

Thomas  Lambert,  of  Stockton,  whitesmith,  in  1830,  no 
doubt  a  descendant  of  the  old  stock. 


3rd.  The  Wetherells. 

Rowland  Wetherell  was  mayor  of  Stockton  1619-20.  He 
appears  to  have  been  father  of 

I.  Giles  W.  of  whom  presently. 

I Wetherell  (sister  of  Giles),  wife  of Mar- 
wood,  ancestor  of  Marwood  of  Busby.     See  that  pedigree  in 

Graves's  Cleveland. 

Giles  Wetherell  was  mayor  of  Stockton  1637.  "  The 
widow  Wetherell  "  (no  doubt  his  relict)  held  a  burgage  in  Stock- 
ton 1647  ;  and  their  son  was  probably 

Thomas  Wetherell,  who  held  another  burgage  there  at  the 
same  period,  1647. 

William  Wetherell  was  also  of  Middleton  St.  Georse,  co. 
Durham,  gent,  in  1683.     There  was  a 

John  Wetherell  of  Stockton  in  1748.     A 

Nathan  Wetherell  of  the  same  place  in  1760.  (Nathan 
was  the  name  of  Sir  Charles  Wetherell's  father.) 

Wetherell,  brought  up  by  his  aunt,  a  Miss  Mary 

Peacock,  was  of  Stockton,  wine  merchant,  about  1800.  He  mar- 
ried ....  daughter  of  ...  .  Ward,  of  the  N.  R.  co.  York,  by 
his  wife,  a  sister  of  ...  ,  Castell  of  London,  and  by  her  had 
issue  an  only  daughter  and  heiress,  wife  of  Thomas  Ayres,  of 
Stockton,  surgeon,  afterwards  of  the  same  place  wine-merchant. 
She  died  leaving  issue  now  living. 

4th,  Bambriggs,  or  Bainbridges. 

John  Bambrigg,  mayor  of  Stockton  in  1559-61-62,  founded 
the  family. 

Robert  Bambrigg,  the  next  of  them,  was  dead  in  1647.    He 

married    Mary ,  who,   surviving   him,  married    secondly 

Thomas  Goldsborough,  alias  Colsbrough,  who,  in  her  and 
her  son's  right,  held  freehold  lands  in  Stockton,  as  appears 
by  a  "  Livery  sued  out  of  the  Chancery  "  by  Robert  Bambrigg, 
12  Feb.  9  Car.  I.  Thomas  Goldsborough  was  alive  1662j  Ro- 
bert Bambrigg  and  Mary  had  issue 

I.  Robert  B.,  of  whom  presently.     There  was  also  a 
L  Margery  Bambrigg  of  Stockton  about  1647. 
Robert   Bambrigg   was  a  borough-holder    of  Stockton   in 
1647,  and  living  in  1660.     He  usually  wrote  his  name  "  Bain- 
bridge,"  and  was  probably  father  or  grandfather  of  that 

Joseph  Bainbridge,  of  Stockton,  who  married  Elizabeth 


— — — ,  and  ill  her  right  held  a  burgage  in   the  town  at  the 

beginning  of  the  18th  century. 

5th.  The  Swainstons. 

William  Swainston,  mayor  of  Stockton  in  1622,  conveyed 
copyholds  within  Stockton  manor,  13  March,  7  Car.  I.  to  John 
Swainston.     He  was  alive  in  1646,  and  had  evidently  two  sons. 

I.  John,  of  whom  presently. 

II.  Anthony,  who  acquired  copyholds  in  S.  24  March,  7 
Car.  I.  from  "William  S.  and  31  July,  14  Car.  I.  from  John 
S.  He  was  living  in  1660-2;  and  there  directly  proceeded 
from  him 

I.  Nicholas  S.  living   1706  and  1718.     He  was  a  bene- 
factor to  the  Blue  Coat  Charity  School,  but  died  s.  p. 

I wife  of  Richard  Bowlby,  of  Stockton,  by  whom 

she  had  a  son,  who  succeeded  his  uncle  Nicholas  S.  as  ne- 
phew and  heir. 
John  Swainston,  of  Stockton,  living  7  Car.  I.  appears  to 
have  been  also  alive  in  1658.     With  a  daughter  Elizabeth,  wife 
of  Rowland  Burdon,  Esq.  mayor  temp.  Car.   I.  he  appears  to 
have  had  a  son. 

John  Swainston,  styled  "Junior"  in  1658,  and  living 
1662.     He  had  issue 

Marmaduke  Swainston,  his  son  and  heir  in  a  burgage 
in  Stockton  before  1743.  This  gentleman  was  not  improbably 
the  Mr.  Swainston  who  married  the  daughter  and  heiress  of 
John  Allan  of  the  Blackwell  family ;  and  there  was  a 

John  Swainston  in  1760  at  Stockton,  in  all  probability  their 

6th.  The  Kitchings. 

William  Kitching  received  a  lease  from  Toby  Bishop  of 
Durham  20  Sept.  2  Jac.  I. 

Thomas  Kitching  suiTendered  copyholds  within  Stockton 
manor  (in  which  town  he  then  resided)  28  Feb.  13  Car.  I.  to 
Robert  Burdon. 

William  Kitching  was  of  Stockton   1647,  and  in  1658  of 
Norton.     William  Kitching  had  issue  a  son 
William  Kitching,  father  of 

Grace,  who  married  and  had  issue 

Elizabeth who  married  Anthony  Smith  of  Har- 


tlepool,  merchant.  He  was  dead  1729;  and  she,  who 
was  aged  60  in  1744,  died  in  1762. 

James  Kitching,  of  the  city  of  York,  tinner,  sold  tenements 
in  Stockton  by  indenture  of  feoffment,  1692,  to  Henry  Burdon 
of  Stockton,  mariner,  ancestor  of  the  Websters. 

Samuel  and  William  Kitching  held  land  at  Carlton  and 
Faceby  near  Stockton,  about  the  same  time  or  not  long  after;  and 
there  is  a  monumental  inscription  to  one  of  the  family  in  old 
Chelsea  churchyard  of  more  modern  date.  The  last  of  the  family 
at  Stockton  was  a  very  respectable  female  who  kept  a  school ; 
but  she  left  the  neighbourhood  some  years  ago,  (about  1835.) 

7th.  The  Fowlers  or  Fewlers.  This  was  one  of  the  most 
numerous  families  in  the  town. 

William  Fowler,  living  temp.  Jac.  I.  a  copyholder  at  Stock- 
ton, had  a  son, 

I.  jVI  atthew,  his  heir ;  also  probably 

II.  Roger  Fowler,  who  acquired  copyholds  in  Stockton,  by 
surrender  from  Nicholas  Fleatham,  20  Oct.  10  Jac.  I.  He 
was  also  a  borough-holder  in  1647,  and  owned  freeholds  in  the 
parish  by  knight-service,  which  were  detained  from  him  by 
Thomas  Goldsborough.     Rog.  Fewler  was  alive  in  1662. 

III.  John  Fowler,  who  owned  a  burgage  1647.  He  is  styled 
"  Senior."     There  was  a 

1.  John  Fowler  "junior,"  1647. 

IV.  Ralph,  a  borough-holder  1647. 

V.  William,  a  borough-holder  1647,  and  alive  1660-2. 
Matthew  Fowler  was  son  and  heir  of  William,  3rd  June, 
5  Car.  I.  as  appears  by  copy  of  Court  Roll  of  that  date. 
Robert  Fowler,  the  next  of  them,  had  a  son 

I.  Robert,  his  heir  ;  no  doubt  also 

II.  William  Fowler  of  S.  circa  1730. 
There  was  also  a 

III.  Francis  Fewler,  who  died  before  1740,  devising  part  of 
a  burgage  to  Elizabeth  Whorlton  ;  and 

IV.  John  Fewler,  who  had  a  sister 

I.  Frances  Coats  living  before  1743.     There  was  an 

II.  Isabell  Fewler  before  1740;  and  an 

III.  Elizabeth  F.  who  had  a  sister 

IV.  Anne  Parkinson,  about  1730, 


Robert  Fowler  acquired,  before  1743,  a  burgage  in  Stock- 
ton, as  son  and  heir  of  Robert.     Tliere  was  a 

Captain  Jonathan  Fowler  of  Stockton,  mariner,  in  1780, 
or  thereabouts,  of  whom  Brewster's  History  contains  a  me- 

The  family  subsequently  lived  in  the  great  house  in  the  High 
Street,  since  that  of  John  Barker,  Esq.  and  it  is  now  (it  is  be- 
lieved) represented  by 

Marshall  Fowler  (late  Robinson)  Esq,  of  Preston  upon 
Tees,  near  Stockton,  who  took  their  name.  He  married  a 
daughter  of  the  late  ....  Stapylton,  Esq.  of  Norton. 

8th.  The  Scurfields.  This  family,  though  rather  of  Crim- 
don  House,  co.  Durham,  than  of  Stockton,  was  long  concerned 
in  the  parish. 

William  Scurfield,  or  Scirfield,  together  with  George 
and  Katharine  S.  received  from  Richard,  Bishop  of  Durham,  a 
lease  dat.  10  October,  18  Jac.  I. 

Mr.  William  Scourfield  had  lands  near  Yarm  Lane  (a 
street  in  Stockton)  in  1683,  which  were  afterwards  John  Dale's. 

George  Scurfield,  of  Crimdon  House,  living  about  1728, 
had  a  daughter  Mary,  married  to  Hutchinson  of  Whitton  House 
(see  that  family),  and  one  or  more  sons;  and  from  him  it  ap- 
pears sprang  the  celebrated  Scurfield  of  Newcastle  on  Tyne, 
the  chemist. 

John  Scurfield  lived  in  No.  1,  Paradise  Row,  Stockton,  in 
1760 :  and  either  his  wife  or  his  mother  was  a  near  relative  of 
Capt.  Reynolds  who  erected  that  house.  The  family  also  matched 
with  Marshall,  it  is  stated,  through  which  they  became  allied  to 
Lamb.     At  length 

Joanna  Scurfield,  the  heiress  of  the  family  (daughter  of 
Mr.  Scurfield  by  his  wife  Miss  Booker)  married  William  Grey, 
Esq.  of  Norton,  formerly  of  Stockton,  solicitor.  Their  second 

L  J.  George  Scurfield,  Esq.  took  that  name  in  lieu  of 
Grey.  He  is  the  present  representative  of  the  family ;  he  resided 
sometime  at  Hardwick  Hall,  co.  Durham,  but  afterwards  at  New- 
bus  ;  and  married  Ann-Alice,  daughter  of  the  Rev.  Rob.  Hopper 
Williamson,  of  Hurworth,  co.  Durham.  (See  that  family  in 
Burke's  Commoners.) 


9th,  The  Wrights. 

William  Wright  surrendered  copyholds  within  Stockton 
manor  43  Eliz.  to 

Robert  Wright,  who,  if  not  identifiable  with,  was  ances- 
tor of 

Robert  Wright,  of  Stockton,  in  1(»60. 

Thomas  Wright  and  Bathsheba  his  wife,  of  Stockton,  were 
living  circa  1730  ;  and  about  the  same  time  lived 

Thomas  Wright  of  Stockton,  who  married  Isabel,  widow  of 
William  Corney  of  that  place,  and  acquired  tenements  there  by 
her.     A  Thomas  Wright  was  also  living  there  in  1760. 

The  first  organist  of  Stockton  old  church  was  a  Mr,  Wright ; 
and  he  was  father  of 

Thomas  Wright  his  successor  in  that  appointment.  This 
gentleman  was  a  good  extempore  organ-player,  and  an  ingenious 

mechanic  ;  he  married  a  daughter  of Foxton,  of  Stockton. 

This  lady  wrote  a  novel  entitled  "  A  marvellous  pleasant  love 
story,"  for  the  express  purpose  of  satirizing  the  Stockton  people 
of  that  day.  She  also  wrote  an  opera,  for  which  her  husband 
composed  music.     With  a  daughter,  they  had  issue  a  son, 

Thomas  Wright,  Esq.  of  Wakefield,  M.D.  living  in  1830. 

10th.  The  Harperleys.  This  family  was  connected  with  the 
last,  temp.  Jac.  I.  not  only  by  marriage,  but  subsequently  by  the 
crime  of  incest,  for  which  penance  was  done  at  Norton  church 
(see  Brewster),  Stockton  being  then  part  of  Norton  parish. 

Anthony  Harperley,  a  copyholder  within  Stockton  manor 
temp.  Jac.  I.  left  as  his  successor  in  his  tenements  there, 

John  Harperley,  admitted  thereto  as  heir  1  April,  17  Jac.  I. 
He  was  living  1617  and  10  Car.  I.  being  styled  "  Senior"  in 
both  years.     He  appears  to  have  had  issue, 

I.  Thomas,  of  whom  presently. 

II.  John,  living  10  Car.  I.  and  in  1660-2. 

Thomas  Harperley,  to  whom  John  Harperley  surrendered 
copyholds  16  Car.  I.  was  living  1660.  A  Jane  H.  widow  (no 
doubt  his  relict)  was  living  1662,  with  a  son  named  after  himself, 

Thomas  Harperley,  an  infant  in  1662,  Mark  Wapps  be- 
ing his  guardian.  He  was  no  doubt  the  Harperley  dead  in  1743, 
who  left  a  widow  named  Magdalen,  and  by  her  a  son 

Thomas  Harperley,  who  held  a  burgage  in  Stockton  with 
his  mother  about  or  before  1738. 


11th.  The  Herrons. 

Matthew  Heron,  or  Heruon,  held  a  burgage  in  Stockton 

John  Hereon  had  a  son 

William  Herron,  who,  as  William  Herron  "  Senior," 

owned  part  of  a  burgage  acquired  h'om  his  father  before  1T40  ; 

probably  also 

Peter  Herron,  who  was  dead  1743,  but  left  a  son 
William  Herron,  who  as  W.  H.  "  Junr,"  inherited  part 

of  a  burgage  from  his  father  before  1743. 

12th.  The  Hartes.     The  first  of  note  was 

William  Harte,  of  Stockton,  yeoman,  mayor  in  1624,  1627, 
1628,  and  living  for  some  years  after,  contemporary  with  a  Tho- 
mas Harte,  probably  his  younger  brother.  William  Harte  had 
only  two  daughters,  his  coheiresses, 

I.  Jane  Harte,  married  before  1649,  to  John  Atkinson  of 
Stockton,  merchant.  (See  that  family.) 

II.  Elizabeth  Harte,  married  before  1649  to  Leonard  Cal- 
vert of  Stockton,  clothworker,  and  living  his  widow  1675. 
There  was  a  Leonard  Calvert  living  in  1662,  and  a  William 
Calvert  in  1744.  An  agreement,  dated  2nd  Feb.  1649,  occurs 
between  Leonard  Calvert  and  John  Atkinson. 

13th.  The  Wapps^s. 

John  Wapps  surrendered  copyholds  14  Oct.  10  Car.  1,  to 
Richard  Wapps,  whose  father  was 

James  Wapps,  probably  brother  to  the  said  John.  James 
was  dead  in  the  23  Car.  I.  and  left  issue  two  sons, 

I.  Richard  Wapps,  already  mentioned. 

II.  Mark  Wapps,  to  whom  his  brother  Richard  surrendered 
copyholds  6th  May,  13  Car.  Land  was  living  in  1660. 
Richard  Wapps,  who  succeeded  his  father,  was  admitted  to 

his  copyholds,  it  appears,  on  the  6th  May,  23  Car.  I. 
14th.  The  Coats's. 

Brian  Coats  was  a  borough-holder  in  1647;  as  was 
Roger  Coats  in  the  same  year.     He  had  issue  two  sons 

I.  Anthony  Coats,  his  heir. 

II.  Thomas  Coats.  Both  were  living  anterior  to  1739. 
There  was  also  a 

in.  William  Coats  living  about  the  same  time,  and  a 


IV.  John  Coats,  who  left  a  daughter  Elizabeth,  wife  of 
Walter  Marshall. 

15th.  The  Watsons. 

Thomas  Watson,  mayor  in  1623-34-39-  46-7-  53-6,  held 
freehold  lands  in  Stockton  under  a  deed  poll  dated  26  April,  6 
Car.  I.  from  Thomas  Burdon.  He  was  alive  in  1660,  and  ap- 
pears to  have  had  a  daughter  Alice,  wife  of  the  Rev.  Thomas 
Rudd,  the  first  Vicar  of  Stockton,  and  a  son, 

John  Watson,  of  Stockton,  living  in  1744.  He  had  a  daugh- 
ter Mary,  married  to  William  Sutton  (ancestor  of  Sutton  of  El- 
ton), and  also,  it  would  seem,  a  son 

Thomas  Watson,  of  Stockton  in  1729-32,  and  1744.  It 
appears  that  there  was  a  partnership  between  Sutton  and  Wat- 
son, during  the  18th  century,  but  the  nature  of  their  business  has 
not  been  ascertained. 

16th.  TheCooKES;  a  very  considerable  family  at  Stockton. 
They  are  said  to  have  owned  the  mansion  at  the  south  end  of 
the  town,  near  the  site  of  Stockton  Castle.  Their  house  is 
now  divided  into  two  tenements.     They  were  merchants. 

James  Cooke,  mayor  of  Stockton  1640-3,  held  a  freehold 
estate  there,  which  he  acquired  by  deed  poll  of  14  Dec.  13  Car.  !• 
from  John  Osborne.  On  the  19th  May,  12  Car.  I.  Anthony 
Stevenson  surrendered  copyholds  near  Stockton  manor  house  to 
him ;  and  at  his  death  his  property  descended  to  another 

James  Cooke,  no  doubt  his  son.  His  name  occurs  as  mayor 
in  1669-74-5-85-6-93-98,  1703-1710.  He  m.ade  his  will  29 
Dec.  1702,  leaving  100/.  to  the  almshouses;  and  died,  having 
had  issue  two  sons  and  a  daughter. 

I.  John  Cooke,  mayor  in  1717-21,  who  died  insolvent 
about  June  1725,  without  having  paid  the  charitable  bequest 
of  his  father. 

II.  James  Cooke,  heir  to  his  brother  and  father.  He  was 
living  27  Nov.  1732,  as  appears  by  a  deed  of  that  date,  and 
also  in  1744.  From  him  it  appeal's  proceeded  the  heiress 
of  the  family,  who  became  the  second  wife  of  George  Crowe  of 
Stockton,  gent.     (See  that  family.) 

I.  Lucy  Cooke,  mariied  to Dalston,  Esq.  of  Acorn- 
bank,  CO.  Westmorland,  and  Jiving  his  widow  in  1732. 

VOL.  II.  G 


17th.  The  Osbounes.  Nothing  is  known  of  this  family  be- 
yond the  facts,  that  Cooke  bought  freehold  lands  of  it  in  13th 
Car.  I.  and  that  there  were  two  John  Osbornes,  a  senior  and 
junior,  in  164T. 

I8th.  The  Jeckells.  This  was  no  doubt  a  branch  of  the 
Essex  family  of  the  name. 

John  Jeckeli,,  a  borough-holder  of  Stockton  in  1647,  was 
of  Dillingham  in  1642,  and  appears  to  have  usually  resided  there. 
He  had  a  daughter,  Elizabeth,  married  in  1681  to  William 
Maddison   (see  that  family) :   and  a  son, 

William  Jeckell,  born  in  1642,  who  married  Margaret 
Moon.  (See  that  family.)     By  her  he  had  four  children. 

I.  John  Jeckell,  who  suffered  in  Sir  Cloudesley  ShoveFs  fleet. 

III.  Ehzabeth   Jeckell,    born    1688,    married    to    Thomas 
Smith,  of  Norton. 

IV.  (?  The  wife  of  Baker  the  Quaker  ;  as  he  is  mentioned 
by  Brewster  to  have  married  a  Jeckell.) 

19th.  The  Buntings.  With  the  exception  of  the  Cookes  and 
Burdons,  this  was  perhaps  the  most  important  family  hitherto 
mentioned.  It  had  flourished  in  Stockton  from  the  time  of 
Queen  Elizabeth,  but  was  probably  most  prosperous  in  the  early 
part  of  the  eighteenth  century.  It  owned  a  spacious  house  at 
the  east  end  of  Dovecote  Street,  razed  a  few  years  ago  to  make 
room  for  the  "  Exchange."  Its  genealogy  is  certainly  worthy  a 
detailed  narration. 

Ralph  Bunting,  mayor  of  Stockton  in  1564  founded  the 
family.      He  appears  to  have  had  two  sons, 

Ralph  Bunting,  mayor  in  1599  (40th  Eliz.),  who  surrendered 
copyholds  to  Thomas  Lambert  2nd  April,  39  Eliz. ;  and 

John  Bunting,  living   temp.   Eliz.     He   married  Elizabeth 

'- ;  who  brought  tenements  in   Stockton  into  the   family. 

They  had  issue 

John  Bunting,  who  succeeded,  as  appears  by  copy  of  Court 
Roll,  dat.  19  May,  12  Car.  I.  to  the  copyholds  in  Dovecote 
Street,  as  heir  to  his  mother.  He  was  mayor  of  Stockton  1648-9, 
a  torough-holder  the  preceding  year,  and  alive  in  1653.  He 
married  and  had  issue, 

I.  John,  of  whom  presently  ;  also  probably. 


II.  Ralph  Bunting,  of  Seaton  Carew,  mariner,  who 
resided  there  10th  May  1666;  but  was  afterwards,  viz.  26 
January  1697,  of  Stockton,  wljen  by  deed  of  that  date  he 
gave  lands  to  his  kinsman,  Ralph  Bunting  junior.  Deed 
sealed  with  a  bird.   ( ?  a  bunting.) 

John  Bunting,  of  Stockton,  is  styled  yeoman  in  1653.  He 
was  living  1658-60  and  62;  but  died  intestate;  whereupon  Isa- 
bel, his  widow,  enjoyed  the  copyholds  for  life  by  custom  of  the 

manor.     She  soon   after  married Lambert,  of  Stockton, 

mariner,  survived  him  also,  and  was  living  his  widow  in  1675. 
By  Bunting  she  had  issue,  a  son  and  a  daughter : 
I.  Ralph  Bunting;  of  whom  presently. 
I.  Frances,  married   to  Mailes ;  but  she  dying  in- 
testate and  s.  p.   was  succeeded  in  a  burgage,  she  owned,  in 
Stockton,  by  her  brother  Ralph,  as  heir  at  law. 
Ralph  Bunting   was  an  alderman  of  Stockton,  and  mayor 
in  1702,   1711,  and  1734.     He  surrendered  copyhold  tenements 

within  Stockton  manor  17  May  1709;  and  married  Anne , 

who,  with  him,  appears  living  (by  deeds  dated)  in  1720  and  1734. 
He  died  31st  Oct.  1743,  eet.  86;  she  29th  May  1746,  set.  84; 
both  were  buried  at  Stockton.  Their  monumental  inscription 
states  that  they  had  eleven  children,  of  whom  only  one  survived 
them,  and  infers  that  their  marriage  took  place  about  1680. 
Divers  of  their  children  however  left  issue.     The  chief  were 

I.  Edmund,  the  only  surviving  child ;  of  him  presently. 

II.  Ralph,  who  acquired  a  burgage  in  Stockton  from  his 
father,  but  pre-deceased  him. 

I.  Margaret  (the  second  daughter  in  reality).     She  married 

Mr.  Nicholas  Bradley,  of  Greatham,  co.   Dui'ham,   being  his 

first  wife :  and  was  mother  by  him  of 

I.  Ralph  Bradley,  Esq,  of  Stockton,  a  counsellor  at  law 
of  eminence,  who  made  a  singular  charitable  bequest ; 
which  was  set  aside  by  Lord  Chancellor  Thurlow  in  favour 
of  testator's  next  of  kin.  Of  Ralph  Bradley  a  biographical 
memoir  appears  in  Brewster's  Stockton.  He  died  1788, 
and  was  buried  in  Greatham  church. 

II.   Frances,  m.  to  George  Crowe,  of  Stockton,  and  had  issue. 

Edmund  Bunting^  was  a  solicitor  at   Stockton  upon  Tees, 

"  This  gentleman  owned  the  MS.  volume  already  mentioned  as  being  in  the 
writer's  possession.

and  appears  in  a  list  of  Attorneys  A.  D.  1730.  He  was  heir 
apparent  to  his  father  in  1720;  succeeded  him  in  1743;  and 
made  his  will  29th  May  1762,  leaving  20/.  to  the  charity  school. 
He  died  set.  68,  13th  Dec.  1764,  having  been  twice  married. 
His  first  wife  was  Mary,  daughter  and  coheiress  of  George  Jack- 
son, of  Stokesley,  co.  York,  gent,  (by  Elizabeth  his  wife,  daugh- 
ter and  coheiress  of  Gabriel  Gibbon,  of  the  same  place,  gent, 
who  owned  an  estate  there.)  Her  marriage  settlement  bears 
date  1720;  in  1724  she  took  out  letters  of  administration  to  the 
effects  of  her  sister  Jane  Jackson;  and  died  2nd  Feb.  1730,  set. 
37.     The  only  surviving  child  of  this  marriage  was 

I.  Elizabeth,  who  was  aet.  5  in  1734.     She  made  her  will 

in  1765,  a  codicil  1767,  and  died  unmarried  20th  Oct.  1767, 

set.  39,  and  was  buried  at  Stockton.     She  left  divers  charities 

to  Stockton. 

Edmund  Bunting  married  secondly  (settlement  dated  9  Aug. 
1734),  Dorothy,  daughter  of  John  Tomlinson  of  the  city  of 
York,  gent.  She  survived  him,  and  made  her  will  1783  ap- 
pointing her  daughter  Mary  executrix,  and  died  19th  March 
1789,  in  her  89th  year.     This  marriage  produced 

I.  ToMLiNSON,  of  whom  presently,  as  heir  to  his  father. 

II.  Dorothy,  who  married  Thomas  Harrison,  Esq.  attorney- 
,    genera]   and  advocate-general  of  Jamaica,  (third  son  of  Sir 

Thomas  Harrison,  Knt.  chamberlain  of  London  and  receiver- 
general  of  land-tax  in  Middlesex,)  and  by  him  was  mother  of 

1.  Sir  George  Harrison,  of  whom  hereafter. 

2.  William  Harrison,  a  lawyer  in  London. 

3.  Thomas  Harrison,  who  lived  in  the  West  Indies. 

III.  Mary,  married  in  1788  to  Captain  John  Sutton,  of 
Stockton,  in  the  East  India  Company's  service.  She  proved 
her  mother's  will  in  1789,  and  died  s.  p.  ^ 

ToMLiNSON  Bunting,  Esq.  only  son  and  heir,  was  a  party  to 
articles  of  agreement  with  his  father  22nd  Nov.  1763,  and  in  or 
soon  after  that  year,  married  his  cousin  Anne  Tomlinson,  daugh- 
ter of  the  Rev.  William  Tomlinson,  A.M.  of  Jesus  Coll.  CambI 
and  grand-daughter  of  the  said  John  Tomlinson,  of  York,  gent. 

Tomlinson  Bunting  made  his  will  1767,  and  died  1768  ;  leav- 
ing his  said  wife  surviving,  who  was  living  his  widow  1773,  and 

''  See  Sutton  of  Elton,  in  Burke's  Commoners. 


marrying,  secondly, Hartley,  was  ancestrix  of  the  Hartleys 

of  Middleton  Tyas.     By  her  Bunting  had  issue  only  two  daugh- 
ters, his  coheiresses  at  law. 

I.  Elizabeth  (another  paper  says  Anne),  ast.  7,  12th 
Geo.  III.;  who  marrying  John  Hunter,  Esq.  of  the  Hermit- 
age in  Northumberland,  had  issue  by  him  only  daughters, 
her  coheiresses,  viz. 

1 .  wife  of Brooksbank. 

2.  Elizabeth,  the  second  wife  of  Robert  Lancelot  All- 
good,  Esq.  of  Nunwick,  co.  Northumberland ;  by  whom  she 
has  issue.  ^ 

II.  Dorothy,  set.  5,  12th  Geo.  III.,  who  became  the  wife 
of  her  cousin  Sir  George  Harrison,  Knt.  (see  Dodd's  Peerage, 
Baronetage  and  Knightage,)  and  had  issue  by  him  a  son 

1.  Thomas  Harrison. 
So  much  for  the  Buntings.     Contemporary  with  their  earlier 
generations  were 

20th.  The  Fleathams,  who  were  several  times  mayor. 

Nicholas  Fleatham,  mayor  of  Stockton  in  1601-2-7-9, 
surrendered  copyholds  within  Stockton  manor  20  Oct.  10  Jac.  I. 
to  Roger  Fowler,  and  was  living  in  1647.  An  Elenor  Fleatham, 
widow,  surrendered  copyholds  4  May,  18  Car.  I.  to  her  son 

I.  Thomas,  of  whom  presently ;  and 

II.  Anthony  Fleatham,  living  1647,  was  brother  of  the  said 
Thomas  in  every  probability. 

Thomas  Fleatham,  living,  as  already  mentioned,  18  Car.  I., 
married  and  had  issue,  and  at  his  death  devised  a  burgage  in 
Stockton    to    his    grand-daughter,    Fleatham,   wife,    afterwards 

widow,  of Corney.     His  issue,  however,  seem  to  have  been 

in  all 

I.  Nicholas  Fleatham,  who  owned  a  mill  at  or  near  Stock- 
ton 1660,  and  was  mayor  1672-3.  From  him  probably  pro- 

William  Fleatham,  who  made  a  bequest  to  the  charity 
school,  and  left  a  widow  named  Elizabeth,  living  before 

II.  Robert  Fleatham,  who,  together  with  a  Margery  F., 
owned  a  burgage,  which  passed  to  Fleatham  Corney. 

*  Vide  Allgood  of  Nunwick,  in  Burke's  new  Commoners. 


III.  Christopher  Fleatham,  living  12  July,  29  Car.  II. 

I.  a  daughter,  who  married,  and  had  a  daughter, 


Fleatham,  who    married  Corney,   and   survived 

him.  She  was  living  his  widow  before  1743. 
The  ftimily  did  not,  however,  expire  here.     It  is  believed  that 
not  only  one  surviving  branch  merged  subsequently  in  Grieve  or 
Grieves  of  near  Stockton,  (from  which  marriage  proceeded,  Wil- 
liam Grieves,  who  was  living  in  1830 — 9,  and  his  sisters ; 

married  to Strother  of  Darlington,  and  a  sister  unmar- 
ried in  1838,)  but  one,  which  still  exists  in  the  male  line,  and  of 

which Fleatham  of  Ripon,  chemist,  (living  circa  1836)  was 


21st.  The  Welfoots. 

John  Wei.foot,   living   1647   (when  he  owned  a  burgage  in 
Stockton),  and  alive  1660-2,  was  probably  father  of 
William  Welfoot,  living  in  1718. 

22nd.  The  Johnsons.  Two  members  of  this  family  were 
borough-holders  in  1647;  a  John  Johnson  and  a  William  John- 

23rd.  The  Rudds.  The  Rev.  Thomas  Rudd,  last  incumbent 
of  Stockton  old  chapel,  and  the  first  vicar  of  the  church,  was  an- 
cestor of  the  Rudds  of  Shincliffe,  co.  Durham,  whose  pedigree 
appears  in  Surtees's  Durham. 

24th.  The  Jessops. 

John  Jessop,  or  Jeseb,  mayor  in  1632-3-5-6-8,  was  one  of 
those  who  received  an  Anchorage  and  Plankage  lease  from  Tho- 
mas Bishop  of  Durham,  in  10  Car.  I.     To  him  succeeded 

Thomas  Jessop,  mayor  in  1658-9-66  and  1670. 

25th.  The  Atkinsons. 

John  Atkinson,  of  Stockton,  merchant,  mayor  in  1657  and 
1663,  married  Jane,  daughter  and  coheir  of  William  Harte,  of 
Stockton,  yeoman  ;  and  by  her  had  issue 

William  Atkinson,  mayor  of  Stockton  1680-1-97.  He 
was  dead  in  1740,  and  left  issue  a  son 

William  Harte  Atkinson,  mayor  of  Stockton  in  1706; 
who  before  1740  inherited  two  burgages  in  the  town  as  heir  at 
law  of  his  father. 


SBtli.  The  Edens. 

Ralph  Eden  was  mayor  of  Stockton  in  1662;  and  a  Mary 
Eden,  widow,  no  doubt  his  relict,  devised  tenements  in  Stockton 
before  1T38  to  the  persons  named  below;  the  former  two  of 
whom  were  her  chddren. 

I.  Gascoigne  Eden. 

II.  Mary  Eden. 

III.  Ahce  wife  of  \yilliam  Forster. 

27th.  The  Moons. 

Ralph  Moon,  mayor  of  Stockton  1682-87-8,  (or  a  near  re- 
lative of  his  name,)  married daughter  of  Thomas  Read- 
man  and  Emmy  his  wife;   and  from  that  marriage  issued, 

I.  Mr.  George  INIoon,  living  1718. 

II.  Thomas  Moon,  to  whom  his  grandmother  Emmy  Read- 
man  willed  a  bur2ja2;e  in  Stockton  before  1743. 

28th.  The  Wranghams. 

Thomas  Wrangham,  Esq.  mayor  of  Stockton  1689-90-99- 
1700,  appears  to  have  married  and  left  a  widow  living  in  1718, 
with  three  children, 

I.  Isabell  Wrangham,         )  whose  trustees  were  Michael 

II.  Elizabeth  Wrangham,  >      Hodgson  and  Peter  Robin-

The  pedigree  of  Archdeacon  Wrangham  appears  in  Burke's 

These  were  the  principal  Stockton  families  which  flourished 
prior  to  1700.  Undoubtedly  there  were  others,  whose  names  are 
recorded  under  equally  respectable  circumstances;  as  Brown 
temp.  Hen.  VIII.,  Laykey  temp.  Edw.  VI.,  Tunstall  temp» 
Eliz.  In  1634-5,  Thomas  Rowe  occurs  as  one  of  those  who  re- 
ceived an  anchorage  and  plankage  lease  from  Thomas  Bishop  of 
Durham.  William  Peers,  mayor  in  1660-1,  and  William  Lee, 
who  held  the  same  office  1678-9,  were  wealthy  inhabitants;  but 
one,  if  not  both  of  them,  were  butchers.  Contemporary  with 
them  lived  John  Anson,  but  his  family  does  not  appear  to  have 
remained  permanently  in  the  place.  A  John  Jesson,  Esq.  lived 
at  Stockton  in  1660-2;  as  did  Mc;or  John  Jenkins  during  the 
same  reign  (Charles  II.);  but  they  seem  to  have  been  solitary 
members  of  their  families  resident  there.  The  latter  was  of  u 
Welsh  family ;  and  owned  the  mansion  at  the  north  end  .ot 
Stockton,  afterwards  Raisbeck's,  and  now  Tennants;  but  thougJi 


he  devised  it  to  Humphry  Jenkins,  of  Yalton,  in  Flintshire,  that 
gentleman  did  not  settle  in  the  town,  but  sold  it  to  the  Raisbecks 
in  1675.  The  Raisbecks  were  undoubtedly  the  principal  Stock- 
ton family  during  the  eighteenth  century,  and  to  them  I  shall 
now  proceed.

When  I  composed  the  article  commencing  this  volume  I  was  two 
years  younger  than  I  am  now  5  these  two  years  have  tended  much  to  soften 
and  modify  some  of  the  opinions  advocated  in  it,  and  subsequent  re- 
searches have  created  some  alterations  in  the  continuous  maternal  pedi- 
gree, which  was  there  introduced  for  the  purpose  of  showing  that  the 
descent  of  position,  &c.  runs  generally  through  the  female  lines,  and 
that  families  usually  derive  their  best  position  from  some  maternal  an-

which  church  an  inscription  remains  to  his  memory.  His  daughters 
lived  at  Doveridge  Hall,  co.  Derby,  and  were  mostly  married  thence.

Page  15.  Since   this   article  was   written   the  writer  has  compiled  a 
very  good  Marston  pedigree,  which  on   some   future  occasion  may  per- 
haps be  printed. 

Page  18.  The  D'Oyly  pedigree  is  here  related  as  detailed  to  W.  D.  B. 
by  the  late  Mr.  Haxby,  a  solicitor  at  Wakefield,  co.  York,  who  was 
professionally  employed  by  the  late  Mr.  D'Oyly.  But  it  must  be  re- 
marked that  at  that  time  none  of  the  D'Oyly  family  (save  children) 
•  were  resident  in  England.  Since  then,  however,  all  three  of  the 
Burvivors    have    visited    England  3     and    thus  1   have  had   the   oppor- 


tunity  of  obtaining  more  minute  and  correct  intelligence  on  the  subject. 
There  is  not  the  least  evidence  in  favour  of  Mr.  Haxby's  story  which 
may  not  be  otherwise  explained  away  :  while  his  authority  is  the  com- 
mon fountain-head  of  the  rumour  or  insinuation  wherever  it  has  existed. 
The  only  authority  as  to  the  date  of  Mr.  D'Oyly's  birth  (viz.  his  own 
statement  in  writing)  places  it  in  1769  ;  and  there  is  no  authority  for 
identifying  him  with  the  child  of  which  his  mother  was  pregnant  before 
her  English  marriage  in  1768.  The  supplementary  statement  already 
printed,  that  his  birth  occurred  in  "  1770,"  seems  to  have  been  but 
a  calculation  upon  his  age.  His  birthday,  however,  was  the  15th 
July.  What  the  actual  fact  was,  no  one  can  know ;  but  it  is  very  clear 
that  in  a  Court  of  Law  his  birth  could  be  proved  to  have  occurred  after 
the  second  marriage  of  his  parents  ;  if,  indeed,  his  admission  on  Wake- 
field manor  roll,  as  heir  at  law,  does  not  alone  establish  this. 

Page  21.  "Newton  Lodge,"  and  "  The  Lodge,"  were,  it  appears, 
different  places.  Mr.  D'Oyly's  elder  children  were  born  at  "  The 
Lodge,"  (at  Heath.)  near  Wakefield. 

Page  25.  Dr.  Bayley,  father  of  Mr.  W.  Bayley  of  Stockton  on  Tees, 
was  a  deputy  lieutenant  for  the  North  Riding  of  Yorkshire,  being  so  ap- 
pointed by  the  Duke  of  Leeds  in  1803.  The  original  commission  is  still 
with  that  family.  Mrs.  W.  Bayley  is  spoken  of  as  a  perfect  Christian 
and  gentlewoman,  not  in  her  epitaph,  but  in  a  poetical  lament,  which 
was  published  soon  after  her  death,  entitled  "  Reflections  in  Norton 
Churchyard  ;  "  in  which  her  monumental  inscription  is  introduced.

By  the  Rev.  George  Munford. 

It  is  little  more  than  two  centuries  since  Weever  in  ihe  epistle 
to  the  readers  of  his  "  Funeral  Monuments,"  laments  that  the 
memorials  "  of  the  dead  within  these  his  Majesties  dominions 
are  to  the  shame  of  our  time  barbarously  broken  downe,  and 
utterly  almost  all  ruinated,  their  brazen  inscriptions  erased,  torne 
away,  and  pilfered,  by  which  inhumane  deformidable  act  the 
honourable  memory  of  many  vertuous  and  noble  persons  de- 
ceased, is  extinguished,  and  the  true  understanding  of  divers 
families  in  these  realmes  (who  have  descended  of  these  worthy 
persons  aforesaid)  is  so  darkened,  as  the  true  course  of  their  in- 
heritance is  thereby  partly  interrupted."  And  it  is  grievous  to 
think  how  little  the  "  studie  and  travels  "  of  this  laborious  an- 
tiquary availed  in  arresting  the  destructive  progress  of  time,  and 
the  sacrilegious  hand  of  man. 

The  present  state  of  the  funeral  monuments  in  many  a  sacred 
edifice  visited  by  Weever,  when  compared  with  what  they  were 
in  his  time,  will  bear  ample  witness  to  the  truth  of  this  remark* 
And  an  inquiry  instituted  with  a  view  to  this  comparison  would 
be  highly  interesting,  though  not  unaccompanied  with  painful 

The  number  of  churches  that  Weever  described  is  not  very 
large,  and  it  would  be  no  difficult  matter  for  the  resident  clergy- 
man of  the  several  parishes  he  visited  to  furnish  the  required 
information,  by  barely  describing  the  present  state  of  the  funeral 
monuments  in  their  respective  churches. 

It  is  with  this  view  that  the  following  account  of  the  church 
of  East  Winch,  in  the  diocese  of  Norwich,  is  drawn  up. 

The  village  itself  has  no  small  degree  of  interest  attached  to  it 
as  having  been  the  original  settlement,  and  long  the  residence,  of 
the  noble  family  of  Howard. 

But,  before  entering  upon  a  description  of  the  monuments  of 
this  family  that  formerly  existed  in  the  church,  it  may  be  well  to 
give  the  descent  of  the  Howards  during  the  time  of  their  being 
connected  with  East  Winch,  extracted  and  compiled  from  "  Indi- 
cations of  Memorials,  &c.  of  the  Family,"  by  Henry  Howard,  of 
Corby  Castle,  Esq.

92  THE    CHURCH    OF    EAST    WINCH, 

The  memorials  that  are  described  by  Weever,  but  of  which 
no  trace  now  remains,  will  be  enumerated,  and  references  made 
to  the  first  edition  of  the  "  Funeral  Monuments,"  which  was 
published  in  1631. 

Page  842 — 849.  "  On  the  south  side  of  the  chancell  of  East 
Winch  church,  is  an  ancient  chappell,  called  Howard's  Chappell, 
ill  which  are  these  monuments  following: 

"  In  the  south  wall  of  the  said  chappell  this  monument,  as  it 
is  here  set  forth  (see  the  plate  in  Weever),  divers  of  the  esco- 
cheons  being  decaied  (which  are  left  blank)  and  only  this  in- 
scription now  remaining  thereon  ....  animabus  Domini 
Roberti  Howard  militis  et  Margerie  uxoris  sue  .     .     .  " 

This  was  the  monument  of  Sir  Robert  Howard,  son  of  the 
second  Sir  John  Howard,  Admiral  for  the  North  Seas:  he  died 
in  1388.  On  it  were  the  arms  of  Sir  Robert,  of  Margaret  his 
wife,  daushter  of  Scales,  of  Newcells ;  of  Edward  the  Confessor, 
and  of  others. 

For  bearing  the  arms  of  Edward  the  Confessor,  Henry  Earl 
of  Surrey  was  attainted  and  beheaded  in  1546-7.  The  author 
of  the  "  Indications  "  of  the  Howard  family  says,  '^  Lord  Surrey 
no  doubt  knew  of  the  patent  of  20th  Richard  II.  which  granted 
to  the  Mowbrays,  whom  he  represented,  the  right  to  bear  the 
arms  of  Edward  the  Confessor,  and  he  had  no  doubt  seen  them 
on  the  archway  tomb,  in  the  Howard  chapel,  in  East  Winch 
church  in  Norfolk.  It  certainly  appears  to  be  a  hardship  that 
a  person  should  lose  his  head  for  quartering  the  arms  of  one  wlio 
had  no  arms  at  all,  as  was  the  case  with  Edward  the  Confessor." 

The  riirht  of  the  Howards  to  bear  the  arms  of  Edward  the 
Confessor  was  derived  from  the  marriage  of  the  second  Sir 
Robert  Howard,  son  of  the  third  Sir  John  Howard,  with  Mar- 
garet, the  eldest  daughter  and  coheir  of  Thomas  de  Mowbray, 
first  Duke  of  Norfolk,  by  his  wife  Elizabeth,  daughter  and  co- 
heir of  Richard  Earl  of  Arundel.  As  this  marriage  took  place 
in  1417,  this  enarched  monument  could  not  have  been  erected 
till  thirty  years  after  the  death  of  Sir  Robert  Howard  whom  it 

Weever  next  mentions,  that  ''on  the  pavement  of  the  said 
chappell,  be  these  two  stones  as  they  are  here  defigured  (see  the 
plate,)  whose  inscriptions  through  time  are  decayed,  or  rather 
stolne  away  by  some  sacrilegious  persons,   a  crime  too  frequent, 

CO.    NORFOLK.  93 

and  too  little  punished ;  but  without  doubt  these  monuments 
were  here  placed  for  some  of  the  ancestors  of  this  most  honor- 
able family,  this  being  their  peculiar  chappell  and  place  of 

"  In  the  east  window  of  the  aforesaid  chappell,  this  ancient 
effigies  (see  the  plate)  of  late  was  perfectly  to  be  seene,  the  por- 
traiture of  the  same  being  exactly  taken  by  the  learned  Gent. 
Sir  Henry  Spelman,  the  memory  thereof  (as  of  divers  other  mo- 
numents, and  by  him  preserved)  in  relation  to  which,  this  wor- 
thy knight  writ  these  verses  : — 

"  '  Creditur  has  sacris  candentem  ardoribus  aedes 
(Quas  dicat  hie  supplex)  instituisse  Deo.' 

"  This  ancient  chappell  of  the  Howards  hath  of  late  veeres 
beene  most  irreligiously  defaced  by  uncovering  the  same  ;  takintr 
off  the  lead,  and  committing  it  to  sale,  whereby  diese  ancient 
monuments  have  layne  open  to  ruine  :  but  now  in  repairin<T  by 
the  order  of  the  most  honourable  preserver  of  antiquities  (as  well 
in  general  as  in  his  own  particular)  Thomas  Earle  of  Arundell 
and  Surrey,  Earle  Marshall  of  England,  and  the  chief  of  that 
most  honourable  family. 

"  To  this  I  also  offer  in  observation,  both  that  the  posture  (of 
the  figure  in  the  east  window),  fashion  of  the  armour,  and  coate 
of  arms  (wherein  it  is  habited)  denotes  great  antiquitie,  and  it 
should  seem  by  the  banner-fashioned  shield,  that  this  was  the 
porti'aiture  of  some  Banneret,  ancestor  of  this  illustrious  family ; 
for  that  banners,  and  the  manner  of  this  bearing  of  amies,  were 
only  proper  to  Bannerets,  Knights  of  the  Garter,  Barons,  and 
higher  nobility." 

The  author  of  the  "  Indications  "'  supposes  this  to  have  been 
the  portrait  of  Sir  John  Howard,  son  of  Sir  William  Howard, 
Chief  Justice. 

"  In  this  church  of  East  Winch  is  a  very  faire  font  of  ancient 
times,  erected  by  some  of  this  family,  as  appeareth  by  their 
armes  being  disposed  in  divers  places  of  the  same ;  the  which  for 
the  curiosity  of  the  work,  considering  the  antiquity,  gives  me 
occasion  here  to  present  the  true  forme  of  one  part  thereof  unto 
your  view."  (See  plate.) 

This  is  Weever's  account  of  the  church  of  East  Winch  as  it 
appeared  when  he  visited  it  early  in  the  17th  cent.;  and  although 

94  THE    CHURCH    OF    EAST    WINCH, 

at  that  time  many  of  the  rich  memorials  of  the  noble  family  of 
the  Howards  were  spoiled  and  fallen  to  decay,  yet  its  state  was 
splendid  then,  compared  with  that  which  it  now  presents. 

The  Earl  of  Arundel  probably  arrested  the  destruction  of  this 
chapel  for  some  time ;  but  it  could  not  have  been  for  long,  as 
Parkin,  the  continuator  of  Blomefield's  History  of  Norfolk  tells 
us,  that  about  a  century  afterwards  things  were  in  a  worse  state 
than  in  Weever's  time.  The  shields  and  inscriptions  upon  the 
enarched  monument  were  defaced,  and  great  part  of  the  monu- 
ment itself  destroyed ;  the  two  grave-stones  also,  and  the  figure 
in  the  east  window,  mentioned  by  Weever,  had  shared  the  same 
fate.  Many  of  the  older  inhabitants  of  the  parish  remember  its 
being  a  ruin  in  their  boyhood  ;  and  as  such  it  was  actually  in- 
habited by  several  successive  paupers,  who  dwelt  in  the  gloomy 
abode  till  the  mouldering  walls  were  entirely  removed.  The  last 
inhabitant  died  about  fifty  years  since,  and  was  called  by  her 
neighbours,  "  Old  Church  Betty." 

At  this  time  no  memorial  of  the  stately  family  of  Howard  ex- 
ists in  the  church  of  East  Winch,  except  two  shields  of  arms 
upon  ihe  font.  Enarched  tomb,  monumental  brass,  and  pic- 
tured window  have  all  disappeared,  and  "  left  not  a  wreck  be- 

The  cover  of  the  font,  which  was  of  wood,  and  is  engraved  by 
Weever,  is  also  gone ;  but  the  font  itself  remains,  and  is  of  much 
handsomer  proportions  than  Weever  has  drawn  it.  It  is  octa- 
o-onal  in  shape ;  the  compartment  facing  the  east  is  plain,  having 
been  probably  so  left  to  receive  the  shield  of  some  future  bene- 
factor to  the  church  ;  on  the  right  of  this  are  the  arms  of  Sir 
John  Howard,  Knt.  who  erected  the  font,  and  on  the  left  the 
arms  of  Alice  de  Bosco,  wife  of  Sir  John :  each  of  the  remaining 
five  compartments  is  occupied  by  a  rosette.  Weever's  plate  of 
this  font  could  never  have  been  quite  correct,  as  he  places  the 
Howard  arms  between  two  rosettes.  Its  cover  of  wood  was  very 
handsome,  having  been  richly  painted  and  carved,  and  adorned 
with  the  arms  of  Howard,  Scales,  UflPord,  East  Anglia,  and  the 
shield  of  the  crucifixion. 

Not  a  particle  of  stained  glass  now  remains  in  the  windows, 
but  in  Parkin's  time  there  were  several  shields  in  the  east  win- 
dow, among  which  was  that  of  Vere  Earl  of  Oxford ;  John  de 

CO.    NORFOLK.  95 

Vere,  twelfth  Earl  of  Oxford,  having  married  Elizabeth,  the 
only  child  of  the  fourth  Sir  John  Howard,  Knt.  and  Joan, 
daughter  of  Sir  Richard  Walton,  his  wife.  This  marriage  took 
place  in  1428;  and  the  Earl  being  then  under  age,  and  marry- 
ing without  the  royal  licence,  had  to  pay  to  the  King  a  fine  of 

The  Countess  of  Oxford  inherited  East  Winch  with  a  great 
part  of  the  ancient  Howard  property,  which  thus  passed  into  the 
hands  of  the  De  Veres,  and  the  connection  of  the  Howard  family 
with  this  parish  ceased  altogether,  having  continued  about  120 

Tlie  only  memorials  of  any  other  ancient  family  now  existin"- 
in  this  church  are  two  inscriptions  to  the  memory  of  Owen  and 
W^illiam  Barnes. 

Against  the  north  wall  of  the  chancel  is  a  mural  monument  of 
marble,  with  the  arms  of  Barnes,  viz.  Argent,  two  bars  counter- 
embattled  sable,  in  chief  three  pellets. 

"  Here  lyeth  under  the  foote  of  this  wall,  the  body  of  Owen 
Barnes,  Gent,  third  son  of  William  Barnes  the  elder,  of  this 
place,  Esq.  who,  after  he  had  Christianly  lived  the  space  of  52 
years,  changed  this  life  for  a  better  Anno  D.  1670. 

"  Quis  sim  nosce  cujus  caro  putrida  nil  nisi  vermis, 
Quisquis  es  hoc  de  me  sit  tibi  scire  satis." 

Parkin  says,  that  on  the  west  wall  of  the  Howard  chapel  there 
was  formerly  a  neat  monument  of  marble  with  the  arms  of 
Barnes  impaling  Shepherd  :  Argent,  on  a  chief  gules  three  Da- 
nish hatchets  or ;  and  Barnes  impaling  Hovell,  Sable,  a  crescent 

This  monument  is  now  on  the  outside  of  the  south  wall  of 
the  chancel,  but  the  arms  are  gone.  The  inscription  which  re- 
mains is  as  follows  : — 

"  Near  unto  this  place  lyeth  the  body  of  William  Barnes, 
Esq.  son  of  Edward  Barnes,  of  Soham,  in  Cambridgeshire,  Esq. 
who  first  married  Thomasine,  daughter  of  Richard  Hovell,  of 
Hillington,  Esq.  by  whom  he  had  five  daughters,  after  whose 
death  he  took  to  wife  Thomasine,  the  daughter  of  Owen  Sheap-

when  not  alhirements,  or  threats,  from  him  who  usurped  the 
highest  power,  could  seduce  him  from  his  constant  adherence  to 
his  abandoned  prince,  and  the  persecuted  Church  of  England  ; 
he  retired  to  a  private  life,  devoting  himself  wholly  to  the  service 
of  God  and  religion,  and  peacefully  departed  hence  in  the  TTtli 
year  of  his  age  1657  expecting  a  joyful  resurrection.  To  whose

The  Barnes  were  lords  of  the  manor  of  Grancourt  in  this 
parish,  by  one  of  whom,  Thomas,  the  grandson  of  William,  the 
manor  was  granted  to  his  son-in-law  William  Langley,  Esq. 
grandson  of  Sir  Robert  Langley,  Bart,  of  Sheriff  Hutton,  in 

William  Langley,  Esq.,  second  son,  was  succeeded  in  this 
lordship  by  Thomas  Langley,  Esq.  his  youngest  brother,  who 
upon  the  death  of  his  elder  brother,  Sir  Roger,  in  1716,  became 
a  Baronet.  He  married  Anne,  daughter  of  Captain  Robert  Edge- 
worth,  of  Longwood,  in  the  county  of  Meath,  in  L*eland,  and 
had  issue  two  sons  and  five  daughters,  and  was  living  in  this 
village  in  the  year  1720,  much  reduced,  and  in  a  state  of  poverty.

The  Parish  Register  books  are  in  a  very  imperfect  state,  not 
commencing  before  1678,  and  having  no  entries  from  1750  to

of  the  Langley  family,  and  among  them,  "  Dame  Anne,  the 
wife  of  Sir  Thomas  Langley,  buried  April  24,  1724.'*  But  the 
death  of  Sir  Thomas  is  not  to  be  found  in  the  register.

fore  his  death.      On  the  day  of  his  funeral  the  shops  at  Stockton 
were  closed  by  order  of  the  mayoj-,  and  the  old  parish  church 
was  hung  in  mourning.     Mrs.  Raisbeck  survived  him. 
Contemporary  with  Raisbeck  flourished, 

30th.  The  Hyltons.  This  family,  a  branch  of  the  great 
house  of  Hylton  de  Hylton,  probably  sprang  from  a  Lancelott 
Hylton,  gent,  who  soon  after  1655  married  Dorothy,  daughter 
of  William  Wright  of  Cumberland,  widow  of  John  Cradocke 
of  the  Hartforth  family; — but  this  is  conjecture. 

Robert  Hylton,  of  Stockton,  gent.  1704,  styled  "senior" 
1725,  held  three  freehold  closes  in  West  Row,  Stockton,  and 
dying  eet.  75,  17th  May   1727,  was  buried   at  Stockton.     He 

married  Esther,  daughter  of  ,   who  died  13th  Aug.  1725, 

aet.  64,  and  by  her  had  three  sons, 

I.  Lancelott,  of  whom  presently. 

II.  Robert,  of  New  Elvet,  Durham,  1725. 

III.  David,  of  Durham,  1725. 

Lancelott  Hylton,  was  of  age  in  1725,  and  living  1741. 
He  died  16  Oct.  1757,  set.  63  (having  been  born  16  Aug.  1694), 
and  left  a  son 

Robert  Hylton,  of  the  city  of  Durham,  who  was  of  age 
1741 :  and  selling  their  property  in  West  Row,  Stockton,  about 
or  soon  after  1742,  the  family  entirely  abandoned  Stockton,  and 
appear  to  have  settled  at  Durham. 

There  is  an  imperfect  notice  of  a  branch  of  the  Hylton 
family  in  Surtees's  Durham,  under  Stranton  parish.  Those  Hyl- 
tons merged  in  Longstaft',  now  of  Norton,  and  are  repre- 
sented by  William  Hylton  Longstaff",  Esq.  a  very  able  genealo- 
gist, who  recently  furnished  a  paper  on  Sockburn  church  to  the 
Archaeological  Institute. 

3 1st.  The  Suttons.  This  family  merged,  through  Sleigh,  in 
Hutchinson  ;  and  George  William  Hutchinson,  Esq.  who  took 
the  name  and  arms  of  Sutton,  and  succeeded  to  Elton,  co.  Dur- 
ham, is  the  present  representative  of  the  family.  This  pedigree 
appears  in  Burke's  Commoners,  but  the  following  points  do  not 
occur  there. 

Thomas  Sutton,  gent,  of  Stockton,  (son  of  John  of  Thorn- 
borough,  CO.  York,)  was  mayor  of  Stockton  1708-9,  made  his 
will  29  April  1718,  and  dying  set.  61,  23  May  1718,  was  buried 
at  Stockton.     His  wife,  Rachel  Jefferson,  was  sister  of  Mr.  Jef- 

H  2 


ferson  of  Stockton,  who  devised  tenements  there  to  her  son 
George  Sutton,  and  collateral  ancestrix  of  Ann  Jefferson,  heiress 
of  that  family,  who  married  Thomas  Hogg,  Esq.  of  Norton 
House.  Rachel  died  Mr.  Sutton's  widow,  having  borne  him 
four  sons  and  one  daughter. 

I.  Thomas  Sutton,  who  married  Elizabeth ;  made 

\\\%  first  will  in  1727;  and  by  his  said  wife,  who  survived  him

1729-30-41.  He  sealed  with  "two  chevronels  f "  in  1746  ; 
and  married  Mary  Watson,  by  whom  he  was  progenitor  of 
Sutton  of  Elton. 

IV.  John  Sutton. 

I.  Elizabeth  Sutton,  wife  of Lownsdale. 

32nd.  The  Dunnings. 
James  Dunning  had  two  sons, 

I.  Thomas,  who  died  s.  p.  before  1743. 

II.  James,  eventually  heir.     This 

James  Dunning,  of  Stockton,  merchant,  owned  parts  of  two 
burgages  in  Stockton  under  his  father's  will,  and  as  heir  to  his 
brother,  before  1743.  He  appears  to  have  been  alive  in  1760 ; 
and  certainly  had  a  son, 

I.  Thomas  Dunning,  set.  20  in  1744. 

33rd.  The  Bowlbys. 

This  family  sprang  from,  or  were  concerned  sometime  at, 
Helmsley,  co.  York. 

Jordan  Bowlby  of  Helmsley,  was  a  trustee  in  1699,  for 

Richard  Bowlby;  who  espoused  the  sister  (and  in  her  son 
heir)  of  Nicholas  Swainston  of  Stockton.  Richard  Bowlby  was 
a  merchant  at  Stockton;  bought  property  there  in  1698-9,  and 
was  mayor  of  the  town  in  1707.     By  his  said  wife  he  left  a  son, 

Thomas  Bowlby,  who  married  a  lady  named  Mary,  (she  was 
his  wife  in  1723),  and  is  described  as  of  the  city  of  Durham,  gent. 
1710,  when,  as  heir  to  his  father,  he  was  admitted   to   the  said 

property,  a  burgage,  in  Stockton  ;  but  afterwards  sold  it  to 

Wayne,  of  Stockton,  grocer. 

'  Chevronels  were  borne  by  Sutton  of  Norfolk. 


34ih.  The  Raines. 

Christopher  Raine,  of  Stockton,  gent,  living  temp.  Will. 
&  Mary,  married  Frances,  widow  of  James  Raisbeck. 
Nicholas  Raine  was  of  Stockton  in  1724;  as  were 
Robert  Raine  and  Ann  Raine  in  1744. 
John  Raine  was  of  Stockton  about  1T59. 

35th.  The  Porretts. 

John  Porrett,  steward  of  the  Borough  Court  of  Stockton 
1680,  was  probably  father  of 
John   Porrett,  of  Stockton,  gent.  1729-32. 

36th.  The  Burdetts. 

John  Burdett  was  mayor  of  Stockton  1715-16-26-27-33. 

Camilla  Burdett  was  living  about  the  same  time. 

37th.  The  Wells's. 

John  Wells,  mayor  in  1713-4,  and  alive  1718,  owned  a 
burgage  in  Stockton,  and  devised  it  by  will  to  his  son  John;  his 
issue  being  two  sons ;  the  said 

John  Wells,  of  Guisbrough  in  Cleveland,  who  died  s.  p.  and 

Francis  Wells,  heir  to  his  brother  in  the  said  tenement. 

38th.  The  Davisons. 

Thomas  Davison,  Esq.  of  Stockton  1718-24,  was  not  impos- 
sibly father  of 

Jonathan  Davison,  mayor  of  Stockton  1778-9. 

39th.  The  Woods. 

....  Wood  seems  to  have  had  divers  children : 

I.  John  Wood,  of  whom  presently. 

II.  Robert  Wood,  and  III.  William   Wood,   both   living 

John  Wood  owned  a  burgage,  which  before  1740  he  passed 
to  his  two  daughters. 

I.  Mary  Wood. 

II.  Deborah  Wood. 

40th.  The  Douthwaites.  See  a  pedigree  of  the  main  stock 
of  this  family  in  Surtees's  Durham. 

William  Douthwaite,  who  owned  a  burgage  in  Stockton, 
appears  to  have  left  two  sons, 

I.  David,  of  whom  presently. 

II.  George,  living  1724. 


David  Douthwaite  inherited  the  said  burgage  as  son  and 
heir  before  1740,  and  was  mayor  of  Stockton  1724-5-35.  He 
gave  201.  to  the  charity-school,  and  left  an  only  daughter  and 
heiress,  who  married  Mr.  Nesham  ;  from  which  match  descended 
the  Nesham  family.    See  their  pedigree  in  Surtees's  Durham. 

4 1  St.  The  Browns.  So  early  as  1638  an  Edmund  Brown 
was  bailiff  of  Stockton  borough,  and  housekeeper  of  the  Castle  ; 
but  whether  he  was  ancestor  of  the  following  family  is  doubtful. 

Henry  Brown,  Esq.  was  mayor  of  Stockton  1732-45-55, 
and  alive  in  1760. 

George  Brown,  Esq.  of  Stockton,  was  also  living  in  1760. 
He  married  and  had  issue  a  son,  the  late  Mr.  Brown  of  Thread- 
needle  Street,  London,  (by  whose  munificence  Stockton  alms- 
houses were  augmented,)  and  daughters,  of  whom  Elizabeth  mar- 
ried Sir  Robert  Preston,  Bart,  but  had  no  issue ;  and  another 
was  wife  of  the  Rev.  John  Gilpin  of  Stockton,  afterwards  of  Sed- 
bury,  near  Richmond,  co.  York.  The  Browns  owned  and  occu- 
pied No.  8,  Paradise  Row,  Stockton ;  which  was  afterwards  in- 
habited by  their  relatives  the  Misses  Welbank.  After  the  deaths 
of  the  latter  it  was  purchased  about  1818  by  Mr.  William  Bay- 
ley  of  Stockton,  solicitor,  (second  son  of  W.  B.  Bayley,  Esq.  of 
North  Allerton,  co.  York,  M.D.  and  banker,  a  D.  L.  for  the 
North  Riding,)  who  now  resides  in  it  (1846),  and  is  the  senior 
practising  solicitor  in  the  town. 

42nd.  The  Maddisons. 

William  Maddison,  supposed  to  have  been  the  person  so 
named  who  was  his  contemporary,  and  a  sixth  son  of  the  old 
Maddison  family  of  co.  Durham,  (see  their  pedigree  in  Hutchin- 
son and  Surtees,)  married,  1681,  Elizabeth,  daughter  of  John 
Jeckell,  and  was  probably  the  W.  M.  who  held  a  burgage  in 
Stockton  temp.  George  H.     Another 

William  Maddison,  probably  their  son,  was  alive  in  1760; 
and  no  doubt  he  was  father,  or  grandfather,  of  the  late  Colonel 
Maddison,  of  Norton,  who  married  and  had  issue. 

43rd.  The  Sleighs.  This  family  came  from  Ireland  it  is 
believed.  The  elder  branch  married  a  coheiress  of  Bathurst  of 
Scutterskelf,  and  is  now  represented  by  George  William  Sutton, 
Esq.  of  Elton :  a  younger  one  is  now  represented  hy  William 
Sleigh,  late  an  eminent  silversmith  at  Stockton,  who  married  a 


Miss  Campbell  of  Scotch  extraction,  sister  of  Mrs.  Sampson 
Langdale  of  Mandale,  near  Stockton.  The  pedigree  of  the 
senior  branch  of  the  family  appears  under  "  Sutton  of  Elton  "  in 
Burke's  Commoners. 

44th.  The  Robinsons. 

Leonard  Robinson,  Esq.  of  Stockton,  cornfactor,  living  in 
1744,  married  and  had  issue  a  son  and  two  daughters, 
I.  Leonard,  of  whom  presently. 

L  Sarah,  married  to  John-Stapylton  Raisbeck,  Esq.  of 
Stockton,  solicitor. 

IL  Frances,  wife  of  the  Rev.  John  Brewster,  A.M.,  Vicar 
of  Greatham,  afterwards  of  EgglesclifFe,  co.  Durham,  the  his- 
torian of  Stockton,  son  of  the  Rev.  Richard  Brewster,  A.M., 
Vicar  of  Heighington,  co.  Durham,  Lecturer  of  a  church 
at  Newcastle  on  Tyne,  (where,  in  St.  Nicholas's,  he  lies  buried,) 
by  Isabel  his  wife. 

Leonard  Robinson,  Esq.  son  and  successor,  resided  in  Nos. 
3  and  4,  Paradise  Row,  Stockton,  then  one  house.  He  married 
Priscilla,  second  daughter  of  Peter  Consett,  Esq.  of  Brawith,  co. 
York,  and  coheir  in  her  issue  to  her  brothers  Warcop  and  Peter

banker.  (See  that  family.) 

IV.  Mary,   married   to  her  cousin  Leonard  Raisbeck,  Esq. 
of  Stockton. 

This  Robinson  family  was  descended  from  one  of  those  in 
Yorkshire,  in  which  "  Leonard "  was  so  commonly  used  as  a 
baptismal  name.  This  was  the  case,  not  only  in  Robinson  of 
Rokeby ;  but  also  in  a  family  of  Robinson  of  the  East  Riding, 
whose  pedigree  appears  in  Poulson's  History  of  Holderness.  The 
Robinsons  of  Stockton  quartered  the  coats  of  Barker  and  Cot- 
tingham ;  and  their  arms  are  described  under  the  pedigree  of 
Raisbeck.  (Vide  ante.) 


45th.  The  Ferrands.  A  branch  of  Ferrand  of  Harden,  was 
located  in  Stockton  during  the  eighteenth  century,  and  was  so 
respectable  as  for  its  representative  to  marry  a  daughter  and  co- 
heiress of  the  Rev.  George  Walker,  the  Vicar.  Having  subse- 
quently, however,  succeeded  to  the  West  Riding  estates  of  its 
family,  it  returned  thither,  and  its  pedigree  now  appears  in 
Burke's  Landed  Gentry ;  but  omitting  the  circumstance  that 
the  present  heir-male  of  the  family  is  a  chemist  at  Sedgefield,  co. 

46th.  The  Lumleys. 

Benjamin  Lumley,  Esq.  of  Stockton,  banker,  a  J.  P.  and

dise Row,  Stockton,  since  Christopher's. 

51st.  The  Jacksons.  A  Robert  Jackson  was  mayor  in  1664,

heirs-general  of  the  Readman  family,  on  her  brother's  death. 
There  was  also  about  the  same  time  one  Easterby,  who  mar- 
ried, it  would  seem,  a  Readman,  and  by  her  had  a  son  John 
Easterby.     Probably  this  lady  was  another  daughter.

John  Rutter,  of  Stockton  1744,  a  member  of  the  Society  of

f  A  seal  which  belonged  to  the  Rutters  was  found  about  1839  in  the  Smiths' 
house.     It  contained  three  stocks  of  trees  eradicated. 


geon;  but  he  came  from  Easingwold,  co.  York.  This  family 
was  founded  by  an

Thomas  Hodgson  owned  tenements  about  1700 ;  and  was 
father  of 

Thomas  Hodgson,  his  successor,  before  1740  :  probably  also 

Michael  Hodgson,  a  trustee  for  Mrs.  Wrangham  about  the 
same  time ;  and  of 

William  Hodgson,  who  married  Katharine ,  and  dying

by  his  wife  the  heiress  of  the  Pinkneys  of  that  place,  (who  had 
maried  a  coheir  of  Pemberton  of  Aislaby  by  the  heir  of  Killing-

died  June  1714,  having  had  a  daughter  married  to  Mr.  Ew- 
banke  (see  that  family);  and  probably  a  son;  viz.  that 

William  Gibson  who  was  an  alderman  of  Stockton  1732. 

In  recent  times  two  other  Gibson  families  have  been  resident 
in  the  town ;  a  branch  of  that  of  Riccarton  in  North  Britain ; 
and  another,  a  member  of  which  was  the  late  Rev.  Jonathan 
Gibson,  minister  of  Billingham.

Captain  Peacock,  of  Stockton,  was  living  1718. 

John  Peacock,  of  Stockton,  occurs  in  1724. 

William  Peacock,  senior,  owned  part  of  a  burgage  in  1743; 
when  also 

William  Peacock,  junior,  was  living.  He  was  doubtless  the 
William  Peacock  who  was  buried  at  Norton  about  1773,  de- 
scribed as  of  Stockton.  That  gentleman  had  divers  children ; 
inter  alios 

John  Peacock,  Esq.  of  Norton,  who  died  about  1835.  He 
married  Miss  Shields,  and  had  issue,  with  younger  children, 

John  Shields  Peacock,  Esq.  solicitor,  who  married  a  daugh- 
ter of  Francis  Mewburn,  Esq.  of  Darlington,  solicitor,  by  his 
wife  a  daughter  of  Francis  Smales,  Esq.  of  Durham. 

68th.  The  Skellys  were  one  of  the  best  families  in  Stockton 
during  the  latter  part  of  the  last  century.  They  descend  from 
the  marriage  of  the  Rev.  John  Skelly,  Vicar  of  Stockton  from 
1742  to  1772,  with  Lady  Betty  Gordon.  Their  pedigree  appears 
in  Burke's  Commoners,  1st  edition,  under  Grey  of  Morwick.  Of 
the  pi'esent  generation,  however,  the  following  points  do  not 
occur.  Elizabeth,  daughter  of  the  late  Col.  Gordon  Skelly, 
married  Capt.  Robert  Colling,  of  Hurworth,  near  Darlington ; 
Dorothy,  daughter  of  the  said  Col.  Skelly,  married  the  Rev. 
Rowland  Webster,  of  Stranton,  co.  Durham.  Latterly  the 
Skellys  lived  in  a  house  previously  occupied  by 

69th.  The  Christophers.  This  name  is  evidently  of  Welsh 
origin ;  and  in  a  neighbouring  county  to  Wales,  viz.  Worcester- 
shire, it  first  appears  to  have  attained  distinction.  At  Stoke  Prior 
in  that  county,  a  most  respectable  family  of  the  name  flourished 
during  the  seventeenth  century,  and  recorded  its  pedigree  at  the 
Worcestershire  visitation  1684.^  The  first  who  resided  at  Nor- 
ton, whence  it  went  to  Stockton,  was 

Richard  Christopher,  who  died  temp.  Queen  Anne,  and 
was  buried  at  Norton  22  Dec.  1708.  He  was  probably  Richard 
(aet.  40,   and  s.  p.  m.   in    1682,)   half  and  younger  brother  of 

''  Its  arms  (respited  for  proof)  were  "  Argent,  a  chevron  sable  between  three 
pine-cones  vert,  a  chief  of  the  second." 


Thomas  Christopher  of  Stoke  Prior's.  He  appears  to  have  been 
twice  married.  His  first  family,  born  before  he  settled  at  Nor- 
ton, were  two  sons  and  one  daughter,  viz. 

I.  Robert  Christopher,  who  married  at  Norton  the  year 
following  Richard's  (his  father's)  death,  viz.  24  Nov.  1709, 
Frances  Cooke,  and  by  her  had  issue  a  daughter,  Mary,  who 
owned  tenements  at  Norton,  and  died  unmarried  eet.  87,  21st 
June  1799,  and  a  son 

1.  William  Christopher,  of  Norton  parish,  gent,  who 
owned  a  small  estate  there  which  he  farmed  himself.  He 
was  born  about   1714,   and  died   11th   Jan.   1785;  having 

married  Margaret,  daughter  of Pooley,  of  Eston  in 

Cleveland;  by  whom,  who  survived  him,  and  died  15  April 
1801,  set.  84,  he  had  issue  not  less  than  ten  children,  seven 
of  whom  attained  their  full  age.  These  were  four  sons  and 
three  daughters. 

1.  William  Christopher  of  Norton,  his  successor,  who 
died  s.  p.  whereupon  the  patrimonial  estate  was  sold. 

2.  Robert  Christopher  of  Paradise  Row,  Stockton  on 
Tees,  who  was  born  1749-50.  This  gentleman  (who  made 
a  large  fortune  by  shipping  and  other  speculations,)  was 
twice  married  :  his  first  wife  was  Mary  Wilson  of  the  Tile 
Shades,  near  Stockton,  aunt  of  John  Wilson,  Esq.  barris- 
ler-at-law,  Recorder  of  Carmarthen  ;  but  by  her  he  had 
no  issue.  He  married  secondly ;  and  died  wealthy,  set. 
69,  12  July  1819,  leaving  his  property  principally  to  his 
second  wife's  children ;  and  thus  the  present  possessor  of 
his  houses,  &c.  at  Stockton,  is  (his  grandson,  by  her,) 

James  Christopher  Davidson,  Esq.  of  Stockton,  soli- 
citor. He  owns  Nos.  3,  4,  5,  6,  and  7,  Paradise  Row, 
Stockton  (the  best  part  of  the  town),  in  the  last  of 
which  Robert  Christopher  formerly  resided. 

3.  Richard  Christopher,  who  left  Norton  to  reside  in 
another  part  of  the  county  of  Durham.  He  married  a 
Syssom  of  co.  Durham  or  Westmoreland,  and  had  issue. 

4.  John  Christopher,  who,  being  really  the  tenth  child, 
entered  trade  at  Stockton,  and  was  long  the  most  respect- 
able in  his  vocation  there.  He  married  Elizabeth  Ander- 
son, a  remote  relative  of  the  late  Lady  Vane  Tempest,  of 
Wynyard  (who  brought  her  up  from  her  earliest  infancy

of  Houghton  le  Spring.  1  Mr.  John  Christoplier  died  11 
July  1830,  leaving  by  her  a  daughter, 

Frances  Christopher,  married  at  Gretna  in  Scotland 
14  Dec.  1844  to  William-D'Oyly  Bay  ley,  eldest  son  of 
William  Bayley,  of  No.  8,  Paradise  Row,  Stockton,

bald Stobart,  of  co.  Durham. 
Richard  Christopher's  second  family  (whose  mosher  was  pro- 
bably a  native  of  Norton)  were  all  born  and  baptized  at  that 
place ;  being

been  probably  so  christened  after  some  very  dear  maternal

1.  Jane  Christopher,  baptized  Oct.  II,  1702,  niarried  1st 
Aug.  1730,  to  John  Moor. 
John  Christopher  resided  at  Norton,  and    married  about 
172 1  a  lady  named  Margaret,  but  of  what  family  is  not  recorded. 
By  her,  who  was  born  about  1693,  and  dying  was  buried  at  Nor- 
ton in  1780,  he  had  issue  four  sons  and  two  daughters.

I.  Elizabeth.     II.  Jane.  Both  were  baptized  at  Norton,  the 

former  19  March  1723-4,  the  latter  3  March  1736. 

William  Christopher,  Esq.  of  Stockton  on  Tees,  Captain 
in  the  service  of  the  Hudson's  Bay  Company,  the  fourth  and 
youngest  son,  distinguished  the  family.  He  was  baptized  4  May 
1735  at  Norton,  went  to  sea,  and  became  Captain  of  one  of  the 
vessels  belonging  to  the  said  company.  His  chief  service  to 
Government  was  his  discovery  in  1761  of  the  passage  through 
Chesterfield  Inlet,  Hudson's  Bay ;  but  he  subsequently  figured 
in  various  honourable  services,  and  especially  in  1783,  when  he 
was  engaged  in  a  gallant  achievement,  at  or  near  Hudson's  Bay. 
After  this,  says  Brewster  in  his  memoir  of  him,  "  he  left  the 
service  of  the  Company  with  considerable  fortune,  and  resided 
at  Stockton."  His  abode  was  the  house  in  the  High  Street 
already  mentioned.  He  died  November  1797,  and  was  buried 
at  Norton  ;  in  which  church  a  marble  tablet  is  placed  to  his 

His  issue  removed  to  London ;  they  recorded  their  genea- 
logy in  the  Heralds'  College;  having  obtained  a  grant  of  arms, 
symbolical  of  his  services,  viz.  "  Per  chevron  wavy  azure  and 
erminois,  in  chief  two  estoiles  argent,  in  base  on  a  mount  a 
beaver,  in  fesse-point  a  chart  of  Chesterfield  Inlet ;  "  ™  and  the 
representative  of  the  family  in  1820  was 

George  Christopher,  Esq.  of  Great  Coram  Street,  London, 
an  eminent  wine  merchant.

Surtees's  Durham  :  but  the  marriages  of  the  children  of  the  late 
John-Douthwaite  Nesham,  Esq.  do  not  appear.  His  daughter 
Georgiana  married  the  Rev.  H.  J.  Duncombe,  nephew  of  Lord 
Feversham.  Of  his  sons,  John  Nesham,  Esq.  is  a  barrister  in

VOL.    II.  I 


in  the  town  at  the  close  of  the  last  and  commencement  of  the 
present  century.  Their  pedigree  appears  in  Burke's  Commoners; 
but  the  yoimger  branches  are  not  recorded  down  to  the  present 
time.  George  Hutchinson,  Esq.  now  of  Whitton  House,  (the 
representative  of  the  family,)  lived  in  No.  1,  Paradise  Row,  till 
1825,  when  their  bank  stopped  payment,  and  he  then  retired  to 
Whitton  House. 

TSrd.  The  Hoars  (now  Harlands  of  Sutton  Hall,  co. 
York)  were  also  concerned  at  Stockton.  Their  pedigree  like- 
wise is  in  Burke's  Commoners. 

74th.  The  Greys  (of  Norton).  William  Grey,  Esq.  late  of 
Stockton,  solicitor,  occupied  the  house  in  Paradise  Row,  for- 
merly that  of  Leonard  Robinson,  Esq.  since  J.  Christopher 
Davidson's,  who  divided  it  into  two  tenements.  The  Grey  pedi- 
gree will  of  course  appear  in  the  Supplement  to  Burke's  Landed 
Gentry,  new  edition.     It  pertains  more  properly  to  Norton." 

75th.  The  Barkers.  The  late  John  Barker,  Esq.  of  Stock- 
ton, who  owned  the  house  formerly  Fowler's,  was  paternally  de- 
scended from  a  family  of  his  name  in  the  North.  His  mother 
was  a  Wastell.  He  married  Ann,  sister  of  John  Rocliffe,  Esq. 
of  Asenby,  near  Topcliffe,  co.  York,  but  died  s.  p.  about  1839, 
advanced  in  years. 

76th.  The  Allisons.  This  family  occupied  a  house  at  the 
corner  of  Cleveland  Row  and  Smithfield,  in  recent  times.  It 
owned  however  the  mansion  and  property  at  the  north  end  of 
Stockton,  anciently  Jenkins's  and  Raisbeck's,  which  passed  from 
Allison  to  its  representatives  the  Tennants.  Of  Christopher 
Allison,  Brewster's  history  contains  a  memoir. 

77th.  The  Smiths.  There  were  two  respectable  families  of 
this  name  in  Stockton. 

Christopher  Smith,  of  Stockton,   banker  and   draper,  was 
mayor  of  Stockton  1786-87-98.    He  married  a  daughter  of  Mr. 
Pasman,  steward  to  Crathorne,  of  Crathorne,  and  a  relative  of 
the  Consetts.     By  her  he  had  issue  to  survive, 
Anne,  wife  of  Mr.  Sanderson,  of  Stockton,  solicitor. 

"  Grey  of  Norton  bears  the  arms  of  Grey  Earl  Grey. 


Elizabeth,  unmarried  1838. 

But  there  was  another  Smith  family,  which  in  recent  times 
has  been  equally,  if  not  more  wealthy.  This  family  came  from 
Norton  ;  erected  about  1760  the  great  house  near  the  vicarage, 
and  has  since  then  resided  in  it.     It  sprang  from 

Francis  Smith,  of  Norton,  living  temp.  Car.  II.;  he  was 
father  of 

Thomas  Smith,  of  Norton  and  Durham,  who  married  Eliza- 
beth Jeckell  (see  that  family),  and  had  by  her  four  sons. 

I.  Francis,  who  married  Margaret  Dodgson,  and  had  issue 
1.  Thomas.     2.  Francis.    Both  of  whom  died  unmarried. 

II.  William,  who  married   Anne  Wolfe,  of  Shadforth,  co. 
Durham,  and  had  by  her, 

William  Smith,  who  married  Dorothy,  daughter  of  Ro- 
bert Deighton  of  Stockton  and  Yarm ;  by  whom  he  left  to 

1.  William,  who  married   Frances  Sykes,  spinster,  of 
Fenton,  near  Newark,  co.  Notts,  and  left  surviving  issue 

1.  William. 
1.  Ann. 

2.  Robert. 

1.  Dorothy,  succeeded  to  her  cousin  Elizabeth  Starkey. 

III.  Thomas,  of  whom  presently. 

IV.  John,  who  died  vouna;. 

Thomas  Smith  was  of  Stockton,  married  Margaret,  daughter 
of  John  Rutter,  and  erected  the  house  in  Stockton,  where  the 
family  afterwards  lived.  He  died  leaving  by  his  said  wife  an 
only  surviving  child,  viz. 

Elizabeth  Smith,  their  sole  heiress.  She  married  the  Rev. 
John  Starkey,  A.M.  of  Cheshire,  who  then  settled  at  Stockton. 
He  died  s.  p.  however:  and  she,  surviving  him,  devised  her 
Stockton,  Seaton,  Norton,  and  Darlington  property  to  her  cou- 
sin Dorothy  for  life;  after  her  death,  the  Norton  to  Anne  Smith, 
niece  of  the  said  Dorothy.  She  died  s.  p.  and  aged,  about  1839,P 
and  was  succeeded  by  her  said  cousin 

Dorothy  Smith,  living  in  1840. 

P  At  Mrs.  Starkey's  death  two  seals  were  found  in  the  house  containing  Smith's 
arms.  One  (the  more  ancient)  bore  that  of  "  a  chevron  charged  with  three  cross- 
crosslets  fitch^e  between  three  roundles  ;"  the  other  exhibited  "a  bend  azure 
charged  with  three  lozenges,  between  two  unicorn's  heads."

78th.  The  Carrs.    This  family  niatclied  with  Nesham. 
John  Carr,  of  Stockton,  was  living  there  1744.     Another 
John  Carr  was  mayor  in  1803-4. 

79th.  The  Crowes. 

George  Crowe,  of  Stockton,  gent,  descended  from  a  family 
near  Elwick,  was  living  1744  and  1760.  He  was  twice  married : 
by  his  first  wife,  Frances,  daughter  of  Ralph  Bunting,  he  was 
great-grandfather  of  Miss  Weems,  w^ife  of  the  late  Francis  Rich- 
mond, Esq.  of  Stockton,  merchant,  elder  brother  of  Thomas 
Richmond,  Esq.  now  a  J.  P.  for  co.  Durham.  The  second  lady 
of  George  Crowe  was  the  heiress  of  the  Cookes,  of  Stockton. 
From  that  marriage  proceeded  three  brothers.  The  younger 
two  were  James  (who  by  marriage  connected  himself  with  the 
Richmond  family)  and  Robert.     The  eldest  was 

Matthew  Crowe^  Esq.  of  Stockton,  who  succeeded  to  the 
Cooke's  property  there.  He  married  the  daughter  of  Dr.  Alex- 
ander, a  gentleman  of  Scotch  descent,  and  a  physician  at  Stock- 
ton, and  by  her  left  issue  three  daughters  his  coheiresses. 

I. wife  of  the  Rev. Charge,  of  Copgrove, 

CO.  York. 

II.  Elizabeth. 

III.  Mary,  married  to  the  Rev.  John  Lawson,  incumbent 
of  Seaton  Carew,  co.  Durham,  brother  to  Mr.  Lavvson  of  Aid- 
borough,  CO.  York.    (See  that  family  in  Burke's  Commoners.) 

80th.  The  Welbanks.  This  family  owned  No.  8,  Paradise 
Row,  and  matched  with  Brown. 

George  Welbank,  of  Stockton,  was  living  1744;  but  the 
male  line  expired,  or  left  the  place;  and  some  aged  maiden  ladies 
at  length  becossing  possessed  of  that  property,  it  was  sold  after 
their  death  to  William  Bayley,  Esq.  of  Stockton,  solicitor,  se- 
cond son  of  William  Batchelor  Bayley,  Esq-  of  North  Allerton, 
M.D.  and  banker.     This  was  prior  to  1819. 

8lst.  The  Clarkes. 

The  late  Robert  Clarke,  Esq.  was  an  eminent  solicitor  at 
Stockton.  After  the  dissolution  of  Frank  and  Rowntree's  part- 
nership, he  succeeded  the  latter;  while  Frank  (who  was  the 
nephew  and  biographer  of  Ritson),  after  long  practising  alone, 
was  succeeded  by  Jackson,  a  son  of  Jackson  of  Normanby. 
(See  art.  Duckett  in  Baronetage.)     Clarke  became  partner  with 


Grey  :  about  1821  the  firm  became  Clarke,  Grey,  and  Bayley; 
then  Clarke  and  Bayley ;  now  Bayley  and  Newby.  q  Mr. 
Clarke  died  in  the  South,  advanced  in  years,  about  1843.  His 
personal  representative  in  Stockton  is  Robert  Rayson,  Esq. 
his  nephew,  who  married  Miss  Phyllis  Harbottle,  of  the  North, 
and  has  issue. 

82nd.  The  Chipchases. 

Thomas  Chipchase  lived  at  Norton  in  1658.  The  family 
subsequently  settled  in  Stockton,  and  appears  to  have  matched 
with  the  Stocks  of  that  place,  a  flimily  of  schoolmasters.  At  last 

William  Chipchase,  living  1760  (or  a  near  relative),  mar- 
ried one  of  the  daughter-coheirs  of  John  R  utter  the  Quaker, 
and  thence  the  family  adopted  the  doctrines  of  that  sect.  From 
that  marriage  proceeded 

I.  James  Chipchase. 

II.  John  Chipchase,  now  of  Cotherstone  in  Wensleydale. 
He  is  married  and  has  issue. 

I.  Hannah. 

83rd.  The  Ewbankes.  The  late  Rev.  Thomas  Ewbanke, 
A.M.  Incumbent  of  Elton,  co.  Durham,  resided  at  Stockton,  and 
died  advanced  in  years  about  1840.  His  family  came  from 
Yarm,  (see  Ewbanke  pedigree  in  Surtees's  Durham) ;  his  mo- 
ther was  the  daughter  of  Dr.  Johnson  of  Durham ;  his  grand- 
mother, Ewbanke,  a  daughter  of  the  Rev.  George  Gibson,  Vicar 
of  Stockton.  He  had  relations  of  his  name  at  York  and  Dur- 
ham, and  was  cousin  of  the  Rev.  Withers  Ewbank,  late  of 
Grindon,  co.  Durham.  He  married  into  the  Shillito  family  of 
Yorkshire,  and  had  issue  an  only  child,  Margaretta  Ewbanke,  who 
predeceased  him  unmarried.  He  bought  No.  9,  Paradise  Row.r 

84th.  The  Metcalfes. 

John  Metcalfe,  living  1660,  had  a  mill  at  Stockton.     After 
which  there  seem  to  have  been  two  branches  of  the  family  there. 
I.  Lascells  Metcalfe,  of  Stockton,   1724-7,  whose  succ.  was 
"  Lew."  s  Metcalfe,  of  Stockton,  "  Esq."  1744 ;  and  his, 
Lascells  Metcalfe  of  the  same  place  in  1760.  And 

■i  Bayley  and  Newby  dissolved  partnership  1846. 

■■  His  father  bore  "  Sable,  three  chevrons  interlaced  and  a  chief  or,  thereon  three 

'  Qu.  whether  the  recorder  of  his  name  had  not  ventured  upon  Lewis,  from  merely 
knowing  the  initial  letter  to  be  "  L.  "  ?     It  also  was  probably  Lascelles. 


11.  William  Metcalfe's.     This 
William  Metcalfe  was  living  in  1724^7.     Another 
William  Metcalfe  (as  well  as  Sarah  Metcalfe)  was  alive 
in  1760. 

Thomas  Metcalfe,  of  Stockton,  master  mariner  1774,  mar- 
ried Anne,  niece  and  devisee  of  John  Wray,  of  East  Hartburn, 
CO.  Durham,  gent,  whose  will  bears  date  1774.     They  had  issue 

I.  Thomas,  eldest  son  in  1774. 

II.  George,  of  Stockton,  who  married  and  had  issue, 
George,  who  died  unmarried ;  Mary,  wife  of  Robinson  Wat- 
son, of  Stockton,  draper,  and  Eliza. 

III.  Francis,  a  mariner,  who  built,  it  was  stated,  Norton 
Grange.  He  married  and  had  issue,  Thomas  Metcalfe,  a  sur- 
geon, (who  married  Miss  Cleghorn,  daughter  of  a  Scotch 
clergyman,  governess  in  Mr.  Bayley's  family  of  Paradise  Row), 
and  Anne  wife  of  George  Hardcastle,  master  of  Stockton 
Grammar  School ;  as  well  as  younger  children. 

I.  Sarah,  who  died  young. 

II.  . wife  of  Mr.  Brown. 

85th.  The  Wilsons.  There  have  been  two  or  more  families 
of  this  name  located  in  the  town.  The  one  of  which  I  treat,  was 
founded  by  a  mariner  of  the  name,  who  came  from  the  North, 
and  marrying  one  of  the  Headlams,  acquired  by  her  the  pro- 
perty near  Stockton  called  "The  Tile  Shades."  Their  chief  issue 
were  Mary,  wife  of  Robert  Christopher  (see  that  family),  Wil- 
liam, of  whom  presently,  and 

Robert  Wilson,  who  had  the  Tile  Shades  estate,  and 
married  Miss  Kingston,  by  whom  he  had  issue  Robert  of 
Stockton,  draper,  (who  died  about  1842,  having  had  issue,) 
John  of  the  Tile  Shades,  (who  married  Miss  Hunter  and  had 
issue,)  and  Jane  married  to  Mr.  Moss. 

William  Wilson,  of  Stockton,  mariner,  lived  in  Cleveland 
Row,  and  was  twice  married.  His  first  wife  was  related  to  a 
family  named  Shortridge.  By  her  he  had  issue  an  only  child,  a 
daughter,  wife  of  Henry  Robert  Eustatia  Wright,  Esq.  of  Stock- 
ton, solicitor,  formerly  partner  with  Raisbeck.  He  married  se- 
condly the  only  child  of Fowler,  representative  of  the 

Launces  of  Devon  and  Cornwall.  Capt.  Wilson  died  about 
1840  at  the  advanced  age  of  90  or  upwards,  having  had  by  his 
second  wife  a  very  numerous  family,  viz. 


I.  John  Wilson,   Esq.   barrister-at-law,    recorder   of  Car- 

II.  Robert,  a  solicitor. 

III.  William  Wilson,  of  Ripon,  since  of  Canada,  M.D.    He 
married  Miss  Jackson,  and  had  issue. 

IV.  Fowler  Wilson,  formerly  master  of  Stockton  Grammar 
School,  drowned  in  the  river  Tees. 

V.  Charles,  who  married  and  had  issue. 

VI.  Edwin,  a  mariner. 

I.  Maria,  wife  of  Mr.  Richmond  of  London,  conveyancer, 
brother  of  Thomas  Richmond,  Esq.  a  J.  P.  for  co.  Durham. 

II.  Catharine. 

III.  Helen, 

IV.  Lucy. 

V.  Fanny.  * 

86th.  The  Sandersons.  This  family  matched  with  a  co- 
heiress of  Thomas  Dawson,  Esq.  of  Tanfield,  co.  Durham  ;  and 
from  that  marriage  proceeded  the  late  Mr.  Sanderson  of  Stock- 
ton, solicitor,  who  married  a  daughter  of  Christopher  Smith, 
mayor  of  Stockton,  and  died  leaving  issue. 

87th.  The  Walkers.  There  have  been  several  Walker  fami- 
lies in  Stockton. 

Mr.  Peter  Walker  was  living  1718;  and  was  possibly  the 
person  of  that  name  who  was  dead  1728,  leaving  a  widow,  Anne, 
and  a  son 

William  Walker,  of  Stockton,  mariner,  1728. 

John  Walker  had  a  son 

Robert  Walker,  to  whom  he  willed  part  of  a  burgage  be- 
fore 1743. 

The  Rev.  George  Walker,  the  Vicar,"  left  coheiresses,  of 
whom  one  married  Richardson  Ferrand,  Esq. 

In  later  times  another  Walker  family  has  attained  distinction 
in  the  town,  and  accumulated  considerable  wealth;  but  it  is  not 
the  purpose  of  this  article  to  enter  upon  the  pedigrees  of  families 
which  have  risen  into  importance  during  the  present  century ; 

'  This  Wilson  family  uses  "  Per  pale  argent  and  azure,  three  gambs  erased  fesse- 
wise  (sometimes  two  and  one,  sometimes  in  pale)  counterchanged." 

"  Walker,  the  Vicar,  is  said  to  have  borne  "  Argent,  a  chevron  between  three 
crescents  sable,  on  a  canton  of  the  second  a  dove  with  an  olive  branch," 


unless,  indeed,  they  have  since  become  extinct.  Of  that  class, 
however,  may  be  named 

88th.  The  Rovvntrees. 

This  name  occurs  in  deeds  of  the  seventeenth  century  ;  and 
Robert  Rowntree  was  of  Stockton  parish  1726. 
Thomas  Rowntree  resided  at  the  same  place  in  1744. 

The    Rev.  John    Rowntree  married daughter   and 

sole  heiress  of  the  Rev.  William  Russell,  Incumbent  of  Elton, 
CO.  Durham,  temp.  George  I.  (stated  to  be  related  to  the  Dukes 
of  Bedford,)  and  succeeded  his  father  in  law  in  the  living  of 
Elton  1758.  He  died  about  1804,  having  had  by  his  said  wife 
one  son,  and  four  daughters. 

I.  John  Russell  Rowntree,  Esq.  long  a  solicitor,  and 
afterwards  a  conveyancing  barrister  of  eminence  at  Stockton. 
He  owned  and  resided  in  No.  2,  Paradise  Row,  and  married 
Miss  Loraine,  but  died  s.  p.  1831,  wealthy,  leaving  his  pro- 
perty to  his  only  unmarried  sister  Elizabeth. 

I wife  of  ...  .   Russell,   of  Ascham,   near  York, 

who  died,  leaving  issue  divers  children. 

II married  to  ...  .  Sheraton,  and  had  a  son  who 

died  s.  p. 

Ill wife  of  the  Rev Coates,  a  clergyman  in 

Craven,  by  whom  she  had  issue  (possibly  with  others) 

1.  Thomas  Coates,  who  had  issue  a  large  family. 

2.  William  Coates. 

1.  Catharine  Coates,  married  first  to  ...  .  Crathorne, 
Esq.  of  Crathorne,  in  Cleveland;  and  secondly,  to  William 
Webster,  Esq.  of  Stockton  and  Newcastle  on  Tyne  (a  de- 
scendant from  the  Burdons) ;  but  died  s,  p. 

2.  Maria  Coates,  married  to  Colonel  Thomas  Robert 
Swinburne,  of  Pontop  and  Old  Acres,  co.  Durham,  of  the 
house  of  Capheaton.  By  him  she,  his  first  wife,  left  issue 
an  only  child 

1,  Thomas    Swinburne,    eventually   devisee   of    his 
grand-aunt  Elizabeth  Rowntree. 

3.  Alice  Coates. 

IV.  Elizabeth  Rowntree,  heiress  by  will  to  the  wealth 
of  her  brother.  She  died  unmarried  1843  at  a  very  advanced 
a"^e,  leaving  the  bulk  of  her  property  to  her  grand-nephew 
Thomas  Swinburne. 


John  Russell  Rowntree,  Esq.  obtained  a  grant  of  arms 
from  the  Heralds'  College,  of  «  Argent,  on  a  chevron  azure 
cotised  gules  between  three  sprigs  of  rowan-tree  vert,  berries 
gules,  as  many  crescents  or."     Where 

89th.  The  Dicksons  of  Stockton  and  of  Harpham,  co- 
York,  likewise  obtained  a  grant  of  coat  armour  at  the  same 
time.  Theirs  was  "  Argent,  three  mullets  gules  within  a  bor- 
dure  engrailed  azure  bezantde,  on  a  chief  of  the  second  three 
palets  or." 

But  I  find  myself  encroaching  on  the  land  of  the  livino- ; 
which  is  not  the  object  of  this  article.  Indeed,  had  it  not  been 
haggling  and  garbling  some  of  the  pedigrees,  I  would  have  no- 
ticed no  individual  living  after  the  year  1800. 

The  above,  however,  are  certainly  the  most  respectable  Stock- 
ton families,  of  ancient  date,  located  in  the  town  any  leno-th  of 
time.  Various  others  have  had  a  temporary  residence  in  the  place  ; 
and  even  members  of  the  peerage  and  inferior  aristocracy  have 
occasionally  lived  there  in  times  passed  away.  In  addition  to 
those  mentioned,  some  other  families  have  established  themselves 
there  by  commercial  pursuits  within  the  last  thirty  years :  but  in 
respect  of  heraldic  and  ancestral  pretensions,  the  above  com- 
prise the  most  important.  Still  other  names  occur  under  very 
respectable  aspects  in  ancient  documents. 

There  was  a  William  Barker  of  Stockton,  merchant,  1732 ; 
Mr.  Thomas  Ogle  was  living  there  1718;  Elizabeth  Wrench  in 
1718-24;  William  Stringer  1718;  Robert  Catchside  and  Mar- 
tha his  wife  owned  tenements  about  the  same  time ;  several  of 
the  Headlams  were  at  Stockton  soon  after;  and  John  Finch 
mayor  1728-9,  devised  a  burgage  to  Anne,  his  widow.  The 
Stocks  were  schoolmasters;  Mr.  Thomas  Smelt  occurs  1718; 
Stephen  Wheelwright  living  1718,  was  dead  1724;  James  Hope 
dead  1744,  left  a  widow  named  Jane ;  and  William  Denton 
living  1729,  was  no  doubt  predecessor  of  Christopher  Denton, 
who  married  Thomas  Sutton's  widow.  John  Benton  acquired 
part  of  a  burgage  from  his  brother  Robert  by  deed  before  1740 ; 
and  contemporary  with  him  were  four  sisters,  named  Martha, 
Anne,  Mary,  and  Elizabeth  Benton.  The  Claxtons,  Cosers, 
Falls,  Grundys,  and  Whorl  tons,  &c.  now  or  late  in  trade  at 
Stockton,  have  been  settled  there  scarcely  less  than  a  century ; 


there  was  a  George  Coser  in  1760;  Joseph   Claxtons  in  1724 
and  1760;  Thomas  Fall  was  mayor  1764 ;  Robert  Grundy  mar- 
ried Anne,  aunt  and  coheiress  of  Robert  Dale  ;  there  was  also  a 
William  Grundy  about  the  same   time;  and   William  Barker 
(already  mentioned)  was  a  borough-holder  under  a  devise  in  his 
grandfather   Grundy's  will.      (This  Barker  was  of  a  different 
family   from    that    which    matched   with    Wastell.)       Elizabeth 
Whorlton  owned  tenements  before  1743,  by  devise  of  one  of  the 
Fewlers.     Afterwards  the  names  of  Lawrence  Jobson,  Lawrence 
Richardson,   Isaac  Todd,   Sec.  occur.     The  first  owned  No.   9, 
Paradise   Row,  which  passed  thence   to   the  Marshalls.     Polly 
Marshall  married  the  Rev.  Benjamin  Evans,  a  Welshman,  Uni- 
tarian minister  of  Stockton ;  but  died  very  aged  issueless  after 
1831.     Her  husband  survived,  but  at  his   death   the  property 
passed  to  her  niece,  wife  of  a  Mr.  Fisher,  of  London ;  who  sold 
it  to  the  Ewbankes.     Richardson  and  Todd  were  living  1760. 
Lamb  and  Colling;,  of  the  " //wrz^or^/i"   family  (an   estate  pur- 
chased by  Robert  Colling,  of  Haughton  Field,  co.  Durham,  gent, 
of  John  Jennison,  for  1000/.  about  1711;  Ralph  Colling  of  Long 
Newton,  gent,  being  his  trustee   then),  were  wine  merchants  at 
Stockton  about  1760,  and  were  connected  by  blood  or  marriage. 
Lamb  left  three  daughters,  Dolly,  Peggy,  and  Bessy,  who  owned 
the  house  at  the  corner  of  Silver  Street,  now  Braithwaite's,  and 
all  of  them  died  at  advanced  ages  between    1830    and    1840, 
unmarried.    Colling  matched  with  Raisbeck  and  Skelly,  and  was 
related  to   Hartley  of  Middleton  Tyas;  but  could  scarcely  be 
called  a  Stockton  family.     About  1760  the  following  names  also 
occur :    Ralph   Vipond,    John  Jefferson,    Christopher    Heltass, 
John  Gowland,  Robert  Deighton,    (see  Smith),   George  Ware, 
Charles  Wharton,  Samuel  Nicholson,  Thomas  Percival,  Dorothy 
Reed,  George  Jolly,   Edward   Fawcett,   Ralph  Whitfield,  John 
Moubray,  Thomas  Pye,  Isaac  Guys,  Ralph  Clark,  John  Foster, 
Ann  Cradock,  William  Danby,  Hugh  Bird,  Michael  Heavisides, 
John  Beckwith,  John  Richmond,  Michael  Shields,  Joseph  Pres- 
ton, Joseph   Moss,   John  Cottingham,  &c.  &c.  &c.     Many   dis- 
tinguished families  and  persons  have  resided  in  the  place.     The 
Consetts,  late  of  Brawith,  co.  York,   sometime  lived  there;  so 
did  the  Prestons ;  and  others,  the  majority  of  whom  are   noticed 
in  Brewster's  Stockton.     Joseph  Ritson,  the  antiquary,  occurs 


in  1760 ;  he  was  a  native,  and  has  been  amply  memorialized 
by  Surtees,  Brewster,  and  others.  Ralph  Bradley,  the  coun- 
sellor, is  noticed  under  Bunting,  to  which  family  he  was  re- 
lated. There  are  no  doubt  persons  and  families  which  have 
been  overlooked  in  this  article,  who  desei've  to  be  as  much  re- 
corded as  many  I  have  mentioned ;  but  imperfections  are  inse- 
parable from  compilations  of  this  description ;  and,  though  the 
foregoing  details  are  all  original,  the  writer  is  very  sensible  that 
in  their  present  state  many  are  far  from  perfect.  He  would 
venture,  however,  to  assert,  that  were  the  contents  of  Norton 
and  Stockton  parish  registries  added  to  these  details,  a  tolerably 
complete  history  would  be  formed  of  all  the  influential  families 
located  in  the  place  prior  to  1800.

The  following  account  of  the  Tregoze  family,  though  far  from 
perfect,  may,  perhaps,  supersede  Sir  William  Dugdale's. 

That  the  noble  family  of  Tregoze  is  of  Norman  extraction  is 
highly  probable  ;  and  that 

"  Le  Sire  de  Tregoz  "  was  at  Hastings  in  1066,  appears  by 
John  Foxe's  copy  of  Battle  Abbey  Roll ;  or  rather  his  "  List  of 
noble  Normans  who  settled  in  England  at  the  Conquest."  Le- 
land's  copy  of  the  Roll  of  Battle  Abbey  (which  indeed  is  the 
best;  for  that  eminent  antiquary  saw  and  transcribed  the  ori- 
ginal), confirms  John  Foxe's,  after  its  rhyming  fashion;  assuring 
us  that  there  were  there,  "  Gurney  et  Greilly,  Tregos  et  Trylly."  » 

The  said  ''  Sire  de  Tregoz  "  was  unquestionably  father  of 

William  de  Tregoz,  who  flourished  in  the  reign  of 
Hen.  I.  and  of  whom  the  great  Pipe  Roll  of  31  Hen.  I. 
1130-1,  makes  much  mention,  which  document  Sir  William 
Dugdale,  in  his  Baronage  (1675),  invariably  refers  to  as  of 
5th  Stephen,  and  this,  because  the  roll  was  considered  of 
that  date  in  his  early  life,  though  Frynne,  and  all  antiquaries 
of  any  talent,  acuteness,  or  discrimination,  had  determined  it 
of  Henry  the  First's  reign  in  1668,  seven  years  before.  The 
said  Pipe  Roll  of  31  Hen.  I.  proves  William  Tregoz  to  have 
been  a  man  of  much  consequence,  and  to  have  been  concerned 
in  Norfolk,  Essex,  Berks,  and  Lincolnshire;  and,  moreover,  that 
he  then  had  the  lands  of  William  Peverell,  of  London,  in  farm. 
Tregoz  married  and  had  issue,  and  very  probably  that  Agnes 
Tregoz,  who  we  find  living  in  9th  Ric.  L  as  concerned  in  Nor- 
folk and  Essex,  was  his  widow.  His  issue  were,  apparently, 
three  sons  and  one  daughter. 

L    Geoffry  Tregoze,    his  heir,    who   espoused    Annabella, 

daughter  of  Robert  Gresley,  and,  dying  in  or  before  21  Hen. 

H.  1175,  the  sheriff  of  Essex  in  that  year  accounted  to  the 

Exchequer,  for  the  amount  of  his  lands,   by  the  name  of  an 

*  See  also  the  Roman  du  Rou,  vol.  ii.  p.  255. 


"  Honour."  He  had  issue,  with  four  daughters,  whose  names 
are  unascertained,  a  son  and  heii\  His  wife  survived,  and 
was  living  his  widow  32nd  Hen.  H.  1185-6,  when  she  held 
the  manor  of  Dunstable,  then  valued  at  12/.  per  ann.  His 
son  and  heir  was 

I.  William  Tregoze,  who  was  a  minor  at   his   father's 
death :  for  Robert  de  Lucy,  of  Norfolk,  was  then  appointed 

his  guardian.     This  William  Tregoze  married Lucy, 

daughter  of  his  guardian,  being  but  17  years  of  age  at  the 
time  of  his  marriage.  He  obtained  livery  of  his  lands  34 
Hen.  H.  1187-8,  and  was  living  in  3rd  John,  1201,  being 
then  of  Essex,  Herts,  Norfolk,  and  Suffolk.  He  died  in 
1208,  leaving,  with  a  daughter,  a  son  and  heir,  both  infants 
under  age  at  that  time ;  whereupon  Stephen  Harengot,  in 
consideration  of  400  marks,  obtained  the  wardship  of  both. 
The  son  was 

I.  Robert  Tregoze,  a  minor  1208,  who  married  a  lady 
unrecorded.  He  died  temp.  Hen.  HL  seised  of  Billing- 
ford  manor,  co.  Norfolk,  as  appears  by  his  Inquisitio 
post  mortem  in  the  calendars;  though  the  year  of  its 
date  is  uncertain.  With  a  younger  son,  Robert  de 
Tregoz,  who  was  of  Suffolk,  51st  Hen.  III.  1267,  he  had 
a  son  and  heir, 

L  Geoffry  Tregoze,  who  held  the  manors  of  Rid- 
dlesworth,  &lc.  in  Norfolk,  and  died  in  or  before  40 
Hen.  HI.  (1255),  seised  of  the  manors  of  Billingford 
and  Riddlesworth,  and  the  honour  of  Peveral  in  Nor- 
folk, as  appears  by  his  Inquis.  post  mort.  made  that 
year;  to  take  which  a  writ  of  diem  claus.  extrem.  was 
issued  1255  ;  and  Robert  de  Tregoze  was  found  to  be 
his  heir,  and  eldest  son.  In  all,  Geoffry  had  issue 
two  sons  and  three  daughters, 

1.  Sir  Robert  Tregoze  his  heir,  who  was  of  age 
1256;  for  in  that  year  he  did  homage,  and  had  livery 
of  his  father's  lands.  In  49  Hen.  III.  (1264-5),  he 
had  a  errant  of  free-warren  in  ToUeshunt  and  Blun- 
teshall  in  Essex,  Billingford  in  Norfolk,  and  Bales- 
thorpe  in  Notts ;  but  dying  s.  p.  was  succeeded  by 
Nicholas  his  brother. 


2.  Nicholas  Tregoze,   heir  to  his   brother.     This 

person   married   Eva (wlio   survived   him); 

and  before  3rd  Edw.  I.  (1274),  by  the  description 
of  "  Nicholas,  son  and  heir  of  Geoffry  Tregoze," 
he  enfeoffed  one  Robert  Burnell,  of  Billingford 
manor,  co.  Norfolk,  and  sold  lands  there  to  other 
persons.  He  then  however  held  one  fee  in  Tolles- 
hunte,  in  Essex,  and  had  assize  of  bread  and  ale 
there;  but  "  the  Hundredors  (Inq.  Rot.  Hund.)  knew 
not  by  what  warrant."  Nicholas  Tregoze  died  s.  p. 
before  or  in  7th  Edw.  I.  (1278-9),  for  in  that  year 
Richard  de  Holebrooke  was  commanded  to  seize  for 
the  King  the  manors  of  Tolleshunte  and  Bluntes- 
hall,  which  had  been  his  (Nicholas's),  and  which  he 
had  held  in  capite.  Of  this  Nicholas  Tregoze,  we 
also  find  the  following  mention  in  the  Hundred  Rolls 
of  Essex,  2nd  Edw.  I.  "  They  (the  Hundredors  of 
Witham)  say,  that  Roger  de  Chaundeford  took  five 
silver  marks  unjustly  of  Roger  Fitz-.Tohn,  whom 
Nicholas  Tregoz  had  unjustly  imprisoned,  nor  could 
he  be  liberated,  even  by  the  King's  command,  until 
he  had  made  the  said  satisfaction  to  the  said  Roger 
de  Chaundeford." 

1.  Lucy  Tregoze,  married  to de  Wood,  and 

had  issue  John  de  Wood. 

2.  Joan  Tregoze,  wife  of de  Burnham  and 

mother  of  James  de  Burnham,  her  son  and  heir. 

3.  Hawisia,  wife  of Gernoun,  by  whom  she 

had  a  son  John  Gernoun. 

After  Nicholas  Tregoze's  death,  these  three  per- 
sons, John  Wood,  James  Burnham,  and  John 
Gernoun,  had  a  contest  with  one  Hugh  Crep- 
pinge,  for  the  manors  of  Tolleshunte-Tregoze  and 
Blunteshall  in  Essex,  they  claiming  as  coheirs  at  law 
of  the  said  Nicholas  in  right  of  their  respective  mo- 
thers, his  sisters,  and  he,  of  Nicholas'  grant  to  him. 
The  contest  was  determined  in  favour  of  the  coheirs, 
and  by  inquisition  taken  before  the  escheator  of 
Essex  in  Trinity  Term  21  Edw.  I.  they  were  ordered 
to  pay  their  relief,  and  do  homage  to  the  King  for 


the  same.  And  it  was  declared  that  Hugh  Crep- 
ping  was  never  seised  of  the  said  lands,  because  Eva 
wife  of  Nicholas  Tregoze  survived  her  husband. — 
Thus  ended  this  branch  of  the  family. 

II.  Sir  Robert  de  Tregoze,  of  whom  and  his  posterity  pre- 

III.  John  Tregoze,  who  was  seated  in  Sussex  14th  Hen.  II. 
(1167),  and  marrying,  had  issue,  apparently,  two  sons;  Henry, 
evidently  his  heir  ;  and  Thomas  Tregoze,  who  removed  into  the 
adjoining  county  of  Kent,  and  was  living  there  1st  John  (1199). 

1 .  Henry  Tregoze  held  lands  in  Goring,  in  Sussex,  3rd 
John  (1202),  as  appears  by  the  Rot.  Oblat. ;  and  that  he  was 
then  also  living  is  confirmed  by  the  Rot.  Cane.  In  4th  John 
(1202-3),  William  Mordant  acknowledged  that  he  ought  to 
render  to  Henry  Tregoze  the  free  tenement  in  Goring,  in 
Sussex;  and  in  1219,  3rd  Hen.  III.,  we  find  the  said  Henry 
Tregoze  giving  the  King  half  a  mark  to  have  a  writ  against 
Emma  fitz  Ralph,  and  Rose  and  Avice  her  sisters,  concerning 
tenements  in  Goring ;  this  Henry  had  issue,  it  would  appear, 
two  sons, 

1.  Sir  Henry  Tregoze,  heir  to  Goring,  &c.  who,  in  41st 
Hen.  III.  (1256-7),  had  a  grant  of  free  warren  in  Gor- 
ing, Deddisham,  and  Warburton,  co.  Sussex;  but  who  ap- 
pears to  have  died  s.  p. 

2.  John  Tregoze,  who  married  Matilda and  ac- 
quired (apparently  by  her)  the  manor  of  Denne,  or  Warn- 
ham,  in  Sussex.  John  Tregoze  and  Matilda,  his  wife,  had 
a  grant  of  free  warren  in  Denne  and  Iham  in  Sussex  55th 
Hen.  III.  (1270-1) ;  and  were  clearly  the  parents  of 

1.  Sir  Henry  Tregoze,  Knt.  who  succeeded  to  both 
Denne  and  to  Goring,  and  the  other  Sussex  estates  of  his 
paternal  ancestor  Henry  Tregoze.  Of  him  hereafter  :  as 
he  became  male  representative  of  the  Tregozes  temp 
Edw.  I. 

2.  Tregoze,  father   of  that   1.   "  Monsire  de 

Tregoz,"  who  in  the  Roll  of  Arms  of  1337—1350,  is 
mentioned  as  cousin  of  Monsieur  Tregoz  de  Sussex,  and 
as  bearing  for  arms,  ^'  D'Azure  a  deux  gemeaux  d'or, 
une  leopard  d'or  en  le  chef." 

I.  Albreda  Tregoz,  who  became  the  wife  of  Richard  de  Bes- 


ville ;  and  had  lands  in  Aspull,  co.  Suffolk,  given  her,  in  frank- 
marriage,  by  her  brother  GeofFry  Tregoz.  They  had  issue  an 
only  daughter  and  heiress. 

1.  Maud  Besville,  married  before  1195  (7th  Ric.  I.)  to 
Colville ;  for  in  that  year  she  had  a  suit  with  her  cou- 
sin WilHam  Tregoze  (son  of  Geoffry)  for  half  a  knight's  fee 
in  Aspull,  in  Suffolk,  which  Geoffry  Tregoze  had  given  his 
sister  Albreda,  her  mother,  in  frank-marriage.  This  mairiage 

1.  William  Colville,  their  son  and  heir;  against  whom 
his  kinsman,  Robert  Tregoze,  renewed  the  suit  for  the 
Aspull  lands  in  the  time  of  John  ;  and  Colville  appears  to 
have  been  worsted  by  his  relative,  in  this  contest.     William 

Colville  married  Rose ;  and  died   before  or  in  1241, 

25th  Hen.  III. ;  for  then  was  she  living  his  widow,  and 
commenced  legal  proceedings  against  Geoffry  Tregoze,  for 
40  acres  of  land,  &c.  in  Aspull,  as  her  dower ;  which  she 
succeeded  in  recovering  against  him. 
Sir  Robert  de  Tregoze,  second  son,  was,  though  such,  the 
great  man  of  the  family,  and  founded  its  most  important  branch  ; 
and  this  because  he  acquired  immense  wealth  by  his  marriage. 
He  took  to  wife  Sibilla,  daughter  and  heiress  of  Robert  de 
Ewyas,  Lord  Ewyas,  of  Harold  Ewyas,  in  Herefordshire; 
and  in  9th  Ric.  I.  (Easter  Term)  had  a  suit  with  Hermenus  de 
Bra  ton  for  the  advowson  of  Braton  church  in  Norfolk,  part  of 
her  vast  inheritance.  But  it  appears,  that  though  duly  mar- 
ried, a  strange  contest  arose  in  the  11th  John  regarding  her; 
when,  in  Easter  Term,  William  de  Newmarket  was  summoned 
to  show  by  what  right  he  claimed  to  wife  her  who  was  Robert 
Tregoz's  wife ;  for  it  appears  that  Richard  I.  had  given  her  to 
Tregoz  in  marriage.  Whereupon  Newmarket  came  and  said 
that  he  had  married  her  in  the  time  of  Richard  the  First  by  gift 
of  Robert  de  Ewyas  her  father.  It  is  very  certain,  however, 
that  Tregoz  had  sufficient  power  to  retain  the  heiress ;  for  in 
13th  John,  Michaelmas  Term,  we  find  "  Robert  de  Tregoze  and 
Sibilla  his  wife"  impleading  Ralph  de  St.  Maur  for  land  in 
Bren,  in  Somersetshire,  the  right  of  the  said  Sibilla ; "  and  in 
Trin.  Term,  I4th  John,  they  had  recovered  the  said  lands  against 
St.  Maur.     This  Sibilla  de  Ewyas  brought  immense  domains, 


including  the  castle  of  Ewyas  Harold  in  Herefordshire,  into  the 
Tregoze  family. 

Meanwhile  Sir  Robert  de  Tregoze  was  High  Sheriff  of  Wilts 
3rd  llic.  I. ;  and  in  three  years  after  was  engaged  in  the  expe- 
dition made  into  Normandy.  In  1st  John  (1200),  he  gave  the 
King  200  marks  in  silver  to  have  granted  to  him  the  wardship 
of  the  heir  and  lands  of  Geolfry  Hose;  and  in  7th  John  (1206), 
on  collecting  the  scutage  of  that  King's  reign,  answered  thirty- 
eight  marks  for  nineteen  knight's  fees  belongine:  to  the  honour 
of  Robert  de  Ewyas  his  father  in  law.  He  also  held  one  knight's 
fee  in  Irchingfield  ;  but  died  about  the  year  1212. 

Sibilla,  his  wife,  survived  him,  and  in  1214  married,  secondly, 
Roger  de  Clifford,  for  which  marriage  that  nobleman  gave  the 
King  1000/.  Roger  de  Clifford  died  1231-2,  In  the  lifetime  of 
his  elder  brother  Walter  de  Clifford,  having  had  by  the  said 
Sibilla  a  son,  Roger  de  Clifford,  a  Baron  famous  for  his  extraor- 
dinary experience  in  military  affairs,  ancestor  of  the  Lords  de 
Clifford.  Sibilla  herself  was  dead  in  1236,  and  by  Tregoze,  her 
former  husband,  had  two  sons  and  a  daughter. 

I.  Sir  Robert  Tregoze,  their  heir. 

II,  John  Tregoze,  who  was  of  Shortgrave,  co.  Wilts,  and  was 
undoubtedly  the  person  so  named  who  had  a  grant  to  hold  <a 
market  and  fair  at  Bren,  in  Somersetshire  in  1253  (37  and  38 
Hen.  III.) ;  and  in  54  Hen.  III.  (1269-70)  had  licence  granted 
by  the  King  to  inclose  Shortgrave  Wood  in  Bradene  Forest  and 
to  make  a  park  there.  His  Inq.  post  mort.  was  made  54  Hen. 
III.  when  he  died  seised  of  a  wood  at  Shortgrave,  in  Wilts.  But 
he  appears  to  have  left  no  surviving  posterity. 

I.  Alicia  Tregoze,  wife  of  Sir  Robert  Cecil,  or  Sitsilt,  of 
Haltrennis,  Knt.  and  by  him  mother  of  James  Cecil,  ancestor 
of  Lord  Burghley,  and  the  Marquesses  of  Exeter  and  Salis- 

Sir  Robert  Tregoze,  Knt.  eldest  son  and  heir,  succeeded 
his  father  in  his  immense  Wiltshire  and  Herefordshire  posses- 
sions, and  was  Baron  Tregoze  of  Lydiard  Tregoze,  in  the  former 
county,  and  Lord  of  Ewyas  Harold  in  the  latter,  in  right  of  his 
mother.  He  did  homage  and  had  livery  of  his  mother's  estates 
in  Herefordshire,  20  Hen.  III.  (1236),  paying  100/.  for  his  re- 
lief.    He  was  living  40  Hen.  Ill ;  and  two  years  after  was  sum- 

VOL.    II.  K 


moned  to  march  against  the  Welsh ;  but  joining  the  rebellious 
Barons  of  this  reign,  the  same  year,  was  slain  at  the  battle  of 
Evesham,  4th  Aug.  1265,  49th  Hen.  III. ;  having  had  to  wife 
Juliana,  daughter  of  William  Lord  Cantilupe  (by  Milicent  his 
wife,  daughter  of  Hugh  de  Gournai,  widow  of  Almeric  Earl  of 
Evreux) ;  which  Juliana  brought  the  manor  of  Great  Doding- 
ton,  in  Northamptonshire,  into  the  Tregoze  family,  and  bare  her 
husband  two  children.  Sir  Robert  Tregoze's  Inq.  post  mort. 
was  made  49th  Hen.  UI.  where  a  list  of  his  estates  may  be  seen. 
By  the  Roll  of  Arms,  compiled  between  1240  and  1245,  we  find 
that  this  Sir  Robert  de  Tregoze  bore,  "  Gules,  three  bars  gemels 
or,  a  lion  passant  in  chief  of  the  same."  His  issue  were 
I.  Sir  John  Tregoze,  his  heir. 

I.  Lucy  Tregoze,  married  to  John  Lord  L'Estrange,  of 

Knokyn,  in  Shropshire,  sheriff  of   that  county  21  Hen.  IH. 

and  Governor  of  Montreuil,  Bruges  (Bridgnorth),  and  Elles- 

mere  castles.  By  him  she  was  mother  of  John  L'Estrange,  who 

perpetuated  the  line  of  the  Barons  L'Estrange,  of  Knokyn. 

Sir  John  Tregoze,  Lord  Baron  Tregoze,  only  son  and 

heir,  did  homage  and  obtained  livery  of  his  father's  lands  52nd 

Hen.  in.  (1268),  and  stood  in  such  favour  with  royalty  that, 

notwithstanding  his  father's  treason,  he  was  acquitted  of  50 

marks  of  100/.  then  due  for  his  relief;  after  which  he  attended 

Edward  I.  into  Wales,  in  the  expedition  made  thither  in  the 

early  part  of  his  reign. 

By  the  Plac.  de  quo  warranto,  we  find  John  Tregoze,  in  8th 
Edw.  I.  summoned  to  show  by  what  title  he  claimed  wrecks, 
waifs,  and  estrays,  in  his  manor  of  Burneham  in  Somersetshire ; 
when  he  showed  that  it  was  the  right  of  his  ancestors  and  no 
usurpation  of  the  royal  prerogative.  In  the  following  year  he 
was  summoned  to  show  why  he  claimed  free  warren  in  Lydyard 
Tregoze,  in  Wilts,  without  the  King's  licence;  and  in  20th 
Edw.  I.  he  received  a  like  summons  regarding  the  manor  of 
Retby  in  Irchingfield,  in  Herefordshire,  when  he  answered  he 
held  it  with  Mabelia  his  wife,  and  would  not  show  his  title  with- 
out her.  In  the  20th  Edw,  I.  he  was  also  summoned  to  prove 
his  title  to  divers  other  prerogatives,  viz.  the  correcting  the  in- 
fringement of  the  assize  of  bread  and  ale,  and  the  holding  Ci'own 
Pleas  within  his  manor  of  Mathuenleye  and  Eton;  when  he 
showed  they  had  been  his  ancestors'  rights  immemorially. 


In  13  Edw.  I.  (1284-5)  he  obtained  licence  to  hold  either  a 
fair,  or  had  free  warren  granted,  at  the  following  places,  Eton 
in  Herefordshire,  Burneham  and  Cheleworth  in  Somersetshire, 
Lydiard  and  Alinton  in  Wilts;  and  in  22nd  Edw.  I.  benig  in 
the  campaign  of  Gascony,  he  had  permission  for  his  wife  and 
family  to  reside  in  Devizes  castle,  and  to  have  fires  there. 

This  Baron,  during  the  latter  part  of  his  life  was  summoned 
to  Parliament  by  writ  as  one  of  the  Majores  Barones ;  viz.  on 
26  Jan.  1296,  25th  Edw.  I.  and  on  6  Feb.  1299,  27th  Edw.  I.; 
and  in  the  year  1300  was  summoned  to  perform  military  service 
gainst  the  Scotch;  but  his  death  prevented  it;  for  he  died  21 
Aug.  28th  Edw.  I.  (1300),  and  was  buried  12  kal.  Sept.  28th 
Edw.  I.  in  the  Priory  of  St.  Augustin  at  Bristol. 

By  the  two  Inq.  post  mort.  made  after  that  event,  one  in  28th, 
and  the  other  29th  Edw.  I.,  we  find  that  he  died  seised  of  an 
immense  inheritance,  viz.  the  castle  and  honour  of  Ewyas  Harold 
with  its  members  in  the  Marches  of  Wales,  which  he  held  by 
barony,  the  manor  of  Eton  Tregoze  in  Herefordshire,  and  nu- 
merous estates  in  Wilts,  Northamptonshire,  and  Salop,  &c. ;  a 
mandate  to  seize  for  the  King  the  lands  of  John  Tre- 
goze defunct,  being  issued  to  Walter  de  Gloucester  in  28th 
Edw.  I. 

Long  before  this  John  Tregoze  had  married  Mabel,  daughter 
of  Foulk  Lord  Fitzwarren ;  and  this  lady  owned  the  manor  of 
Weston  in  Bedfordshire,  and  the  hamlet  of  Sturden,  in  Glou- 
cestershire, as  appears  by  her  Inq.  post  mortem,  made  25th 
Edw.  I.  (1296-7)  she  being  described  in  the  record  as  his  wife.^ 
By  her  John  Lord  Tregoze  had  only  two  daughters, 

I.  Clarissa  Tregoze,  who  had  been  married  v.  p.  to  Roger 
la  Warre,  and  predeceased  her  father,  leaving  by  her  husband 
a  son  and  heir 

1.  John  la  Warre,  who  on  his  maternal  grandfather's 
death,  being  23  years  of  age,  succeeded  eventually  to  Harold 
Ewyas  castle  and  lordship,  &c.  with  a  right  to  quarter  the 
Tregoze  arms,  as  borne  by  his  ancestors. 

II.  Sibilla  Tregoze,  who  was  living  at  her  father's  death 
28  Edw.  X.  and  then  28  years  of  age,  being  wile  of  William 
de  Grandison  (or  as  it  was  then  latinized  "  de  Grandi  Bono,")

some  time  of  Exon  Hill,  co.  Glouc.  to  whom  she  was  mmTied 
about  or  before  13th  Edw,  I.  when  her  father  settled  upon  her 
and  her  husband  lands  at  Lydiard  Trcgoze  in  Wilts,  in  frank 
marriage.     From  this  marriage  descended  the 

Scudamores  of  Holm-Lacy,  in  Herefordshire. 
But  on  the  decease  of  Sir  John  dc  Tregozc,  contention  arose 
between  his  coheirs  regarding  the  division  of  his  lands ;  and 
in  31st  Edw.  I.  the  escheator  of  Herefordshire  and  Wales  was 
commanded  to  inform  William  de  Grandison  and  Sibil  his 
wife,  that  John  la  Warre,  cousin  {i.  c.  grandson)  and  one  of 
the  heirs  of  John  Tregoze,  refuses  to  take  the  knight's  fees, 
which  had  been  assigned  to  him  in  the  division  made  of  the 
estates  between  the  heirs ;  because,  as  he  alleges,  the  greater 
part  of  the  said  fees  pertained  to  his  castle  of  Ewyas  Harold  ; 
and  soon  after,  we  find  William  de  Grandison  placing  himself 
under  the  King's  protection  ;  which  probably  decided  the  con- 
test in  Grandison 's  favour.  However  this  may  be,  the  male 
representation  of  the  Tregoze  family  descended,  on  Sir  John's 
death,  to  his  half-cousin. 

Sir  Henry  Tregoze,  of  Goring,  in  Sussex,  who,  or  his  pro- 
genitors, had  differenced  the  family  armorial  charges  of  gemel 
bars  and  the  passant  lion,  by  placing  them  on  a  blue,  instead  of 
a  red  shield ;  and  the  Roll  of  Arms  compiled  between  2nd  and 
7th  Edw.  II.  proves  the  coat  borne  by  Sir  Henry  Tregoze  to 
have  been  "  de  Azure,  a  ii  barres  gimyles  de  or,  en  le  chef  un 
lupard  passaunt  de  or;"  but  it  is  a  curious  fact,  that  soon  after 
the  final  extinction  of  the  above  senior  branch  of  the  family.  Sir 
Henry  handed  over  this  coat  to  the  younger  branches  of  his  own 
family,  and  he,  or  his  son  and  heir,  resumed  the  old  colours  of 
red  and  gold,  but  bore  them  reversed ;  viz.  a  golden  shield  with 
the  charges  gules.  This  was  possibly  intended  to  mark,  that, 
thouo'h  chief  of  his  house,  he  was  not  lineally  descended  from  its 
originally  elder  line,  which  bore  the  field  gules  and  the  bearings 
or,  and  which  the  la  Warres  and  Grandisons  would  be  entitled 
to  claim. 

Sir  Henry  Tregoze  had  succeeded  his  parents  and  ancestors  in 
their  Sussex  estates,  before  he  became  head  of  his  family ;  and 
about  1271  he  sold  his  manor  of  Denne  or  Warnham,  co.  Sus- 
sex, to  Rosa  de  Oyly  of  Raunton,  in  Staffordshire.  In  3rd 
Edw,  I.  it  was  found  that  Henry  Tregozc  claimed  wrecks  in 


Palynge  hundred,  and  assize  of  bread  and  ale  in  the  vill  of  Go- 
ring ;  and,  moreover,  that  he  had  appropriated  to  himself  free 
warren  there. 

This  Sir  Henry  Tregoze  married  Margaret,  daughter  and 
heiress  of  his  neighbour,  John  de  Goring,  of  co.  Sussex  ;  through 
which  match  some  represent  the  family  as  acquiring  Goring 
lordship ;  but  it  has  been  shown  that  the  Tregozes  held  property 
there  nearly  a  century  before.  Sir  Henry  was,  however,  also 
.  fard  of  Wykenholle,  co.  Sussex ;  and  in  importance  almost  ex- 
ceeded his  great  deceased  kinsman  John  Baron  Tregoze ;  for 
during  the  reigns  of  Edward  I.  and  Edward  H.  1294  and  1322, 
Sir  Henry  Tregoze,  having  acquired  nmch  renown  in  the  Scotch 
wars,  was  summoned  to  Parliament  as  a  Baron. 

In  1296,  24th  Edw.  I.  he  was  enrolled,  pursuant  to  an  ordi- 
nance for  the  defence  of  the  sea-coast  of  Sussex,  as  a  knight 
holding  lands  within  the  rape  of  Arundel,  but  not  resident  in  the 
county;  and,  in  1297,  he  was  among  those  returned  from  Sus- 
sex and  Surrey,  as  holding  lands  or  rents  of  20/.  yearly,  and  as 
such  summoned  to  perform  military  service  in  parts  beyond  the 
seas.  In  29  Edw.  I.  he  obtained  licence  from  the  King  to  liold 
a  market  and  fair  at  Goring ;  in  1301  we  find  him  styled  "Do- 
minus  de  Garynnges ; "  and  in  33rd  Edw.  I,  he  had  a  grant  of 
free  warren  in  Wykenholt,  co.  Sussex. 

In  1307  he  was  a  Conservator  of  Peace  in  Surrey,  and  in  the 
following  year  (1308)  in  Sussex;  in  which  last  year  also  he  was 
summoned  to  attend  King  Edward  II.'s  Coronation.  In  1309 
and  in  1313,  "  Henry  Tregoze"  {sed  (ju.  he  or  his  younger  son?) 
was  summoned  to  Parliament  as  Knioht  of  the  Shire  for  Sussex  as 
well  as  by  special  writ.  By  the  said  Margaret  de  Goring  he  had 

I.  Sir  Thomas  de  Tregoze,  his  heir. 

II.  Henry  Tregoze,  living  1323,  who  died  s.  p. 

I.  Isabella  de  Tregoze,  wife  of  John  Boome,  of  Andeherste. 
Sir  Thomas  de  Tregoze,  elder  son  and  heir,  Lord  of  Goring, 
&c.  &c.  was  a  Knight  of  great  note,  and  in  1316  (9  Edw.  II.) 
was  certified,  pursuant  to  the  writ  tested  at  Clipstone,  to  be  lord 
of  Goring,  Preston  near  Arundel,  Burpham,  and  Gretham,  co. 
Sussex.  In  1318  he  was  summoned  against  the  Scotch.  On 
the  4th  January  that  year,  11th  Edw.  II.,  he  was  summoned  to 
Parliament  as  a  Major  Baron,  as  bis  father  had  been ;  and  in 


1325  was  summoned,  with  certain  other  knights,  to  pass  over  into 
Guienne  under  the  Earl  of  Warren's  command.  He  liad  a  grant 
of  free  warren  in  Goring,  Preston,  Deddisham,  and  several  other 
places  in  Sussex  and  Kent,  5  Edw.  III. ;  and  was  summoned  to 
Parh'ament  once  more  as  a  Baron,  from  20th  Oct.  1332  to  9th 
April  1335. 

This  Sir  Thomas  Tregoze  married  Joane,  daughter  of 

Lord  Poynings,  of  the  county  of  Sussex,  and  was  dead  in  2Gth 
Edw.  Ill ;  for  then  was  the  said  Joane  liis  widow,  and  party  to  a 
family  settlement  made  by  her  son  in  law,  Sir  John  D'Oyly,  and 
Margaret  his  wife,  her  daughter.     Sir  Thomas  Tregoze  had  by 
her  two  children,  a  son  and  a  daughter, 
I.  Sir  Henry  de  Tregoze,  his  heir. 
I.  Margaret  de  Tregoze  married  to  Sir  John  D'Oyly,  ma- 
norial lord  of  Raunton,  in  Staffordshire,  and  of  Stoke-D'Oyly, 
in  Northamptonshire,    as   well   as   of    la  Denne,  in  Warn- 
ham  parish,  co.  Sussex.     By  him  she  had  issue  a  son  and  a 
daughter.  ^ 

1.  Sir  Thomas  D'Oyly,  who  died  s.  p. 
1.  Joane  D'Oyly,  sole  heiress  to  her  brother.     She  was 
twice  married  :  first  to  Sir  Thomas  Lewknor,  of  Bradhurst, 
CO.  Sussex  ;  and  secondly  to  John  Deering  alias  de  Cobham. 
By  her  first  husband  she  had  issue  two  sons ; 

1,  Roger  Lewknor,  who  married  Margaret,  daughter 
of  Sir  John  Carew,  of  Molesford,  co.  Berks,  and  had 
issue  by  her  at  his  death,  1400-1,  a  son  and  heir, 

1.  Sir  Thomas  Lewknor,  who  eventually,  in  1403-4, 
became  heir  of  the  Tregozes  through  his  grandmother. 

2.  John  Lewknor,  on  whom  was  settled  the  D'Oylys' 
manor  of  la  Denne,  co.  Sussex.  He  died  leaving  co- 
heiresses ;  from  the  only  one  of  whom  that  married,  de- 
scend the  Bartelotts  of  Stopham. 

Sir  Henry  Tregoze,  Knt.  succeeded  his  father,  but  was 
never  summoned  to  Parliament  as  a  Baron.  He  was  lord  of 
Goring,  however,  and  inherited  the  other  extensive  estates  of  his 

family.    This  Sir  Henry  espoused  Joane,  daughter  of Lord 

Morley ;  which  lady  surviving  him  married,  secondly.  Sir  Edward 
St.  John,  chevalier,  who  likewise  predeceased  her.  She  made 
her  will  Sunday  next  after   St.  Martin's  day,   12th  Nov.  1385,

(widow  of  her  son  Sir  Robert) ;  to  John  her  son ;  to  the  Earl 
of  Arundel,  an  article  marked  with  her  father's  arms ;  to  his 
eldest  son ;  to  Thomas  Chamberlain,  to  Richard  Chamberlain, 
and  a  brown  bay  horse  to  John  Pakenham,  She  held  Goring 
and  all  the  Tregoze  estates  till  her  death,  which  occurring  in  or 
before  10th  Ric.  II.  an  Inquis.  post  mortem  being  taken,  it  was 
found  that  she  died  seised  of  lands  in  Goring,  Haydon,  Dades- 
ham,  Preston,  &c.  &c,  and  that  Edward  Tregoze  was  her  grand- 
son and  heir,  then  a  minor  of  the  age  of  8  years,  and  son  of  Sir 
Robert  Tregoze.     Her  issue  by  Sir  Henry  Tregoze  were 

I.  Henry  Tregoze,  who  had  issue 

1.  Sir  Henry  Tregoze,  who  died  s.  p. 

II.  Thomas  Tregoze,  who  died  s.  p. 

III.  Sir  Robert  Tregoze,  of  Goring,  who  married  Joane, 
daughter  and  heiress  of  Richard  Combes,  lord  of  the  manors 
of  Applesham  and  Combes,  and  relict  of  Robert  Hailsham,  of 
West  Grinsted  (whose  second  wife  she  had  been)  and  died 
about  3rd  Ric.  II.  or  soon  after,  leaving  by  her  an  only  son 
and  heir 

1.  Edward  Tregoze,  of  whom  presently. 

IV.  Michael  Tregoze,  a  monk  at  Lewes;  who  therefore 
died  unmarried. 

V.  John  Tregoze,  last  heir  male  of  the  Tregozes ;  uncle 
and  heir  of  Edward,     Of  him  hereafter. 

VL  Richard  Tregoze,  who  died  s,  p. 

I.  Joan  Tregoze,  wife  of  J  .  .  .  Lelbon ;  but  died  s,  p. 

II.  Margaret  Tregoze,  who  died  unmarried. 

Edward  Tregoze,  heir  to  his  father  and  grandmother,  was 
aged  8  in  10th  Ric.  II.  and  attained  his  majority  in  22nd  Ric.  II. 
(1398-9).  He  was  married  very  early;  first  to  Alice,  daughter 
of  Ralph  St.  Leger,  by  whom  he  had 

I.  Edward  Tregoze,  who  died  s.  p.  v.  p. 

II.  Tregoze  (another  son),  who  died  an  infant. 

I.  Joane  Tregoze,  said  to  have  been  married  (though,  as  it 
must  have  been  before  her  8th  year,  probably  only  contracted) 
to  Edward  St.  John.  She  seems,  however,  to  have  died  s,  p. 


Edward  Tregozc  married  secondly,  Alice,  daughter  of  Edward 
St.  Joiin,  and  had  issue  by  her, 

III.  William  Tregoze, 

IV.  Robert  Tregoze.     Both  of  whom  died  early  s.  p. 

The  said  Edward  Tregoze  died  in  the  flower  of  his  age,  hardly 
more  than  23,  in  the  1st  Hen.  IV.  (1399-1400),  s.  p.  s, ;  as  by 
his  Inquis.  post  mort.  appears;  and  that  he  died  seised  of 
Goring,  Preston,  ike.  &c.  (all  the  okl  i'amily  estates)  in  Sussex ; 
and  that  John  Tregoze  (son  of  Sir  Henry)  was  his  cousin  (uncle) 
and  heir,  and  then  set.  30  years.     This 

John  Tregoze  (5th  son  of  Sir  Henry,  by  Lord  Morley's 
daughter,)  was  born  about  1369,  and  succeeded  his  above  ne- 
phew in  the  various  fiimily  estates,  1499  (1st  Hen.  IV.)  He  did 
not,  however,  long  enjoy  them ;  but  died  seised  of  them  in  the 
5th  Hen.  IV.  (1403-4),  and  the  jury  empanelled  at  his  Inquis. 
post  mort.  found,  that  he  died  s.  p.,  and  that  his  heir  was  Tho- 
mas Lewknor,  then  aged  only  12  years,  the  son  of  Roger  Lewk- 
nor  son  of  Joane  Lewknor,  the  daughter  of  Margaret  D'Oyle, 
sister  of  Sir  Henry  Tregoze,  father  of  the  deceased  John.  Thus 
all  the  estates  of  the  Tregozes,  viz.  Bogelie  in  Kent,  and  Goring, 
Preston,  Burgham,  Perham,  Walderton,  Wigenholt,  Gretham, 
and  Codham,  in  Sussex,  passed  through  the  D'Oylys  into  the 
Lewknor  family ;  among  the  various  members  of  the  latter  of 
which,  they  were  eventually  divided;  and  thus  were  founded  the 
several  branches  of  the  Lewknors,  at  Goring,  Preston,  Walder- 
ton, &c.  See. 

The  Tregoze  family,  (or  to  speak  more  strictly,  its  surname,) 
did  not  expire  with  John  Tregoze  who  died  5th  Hen.  IV.  There 
was  long  afterwards  a  family  of  the  name  of  "  Tregoz  alias  Tre- 
goies,"  in  Cornwall.  If  legitimate,  it  is  probable  that  these 
Tregozes  sprang  from  a  scion  of  the  Sussex  branch ;  as  they  are 
said  to  have  borne  the  same  charges  with  the  tinctures  of  blue  and 
gold  :  but  this  is  doubtful.  It  might  merely  be  an  assumption  : 
and  it  is  certain  that  some  of  the  Cornish  Tregozes  bore  "  Ar- 
gent, three  foxes  in  full  course  sable."

The  reader  is  referred  to  vol.  I.  p.  568,  for  an  account  and  descrip- 
tion of  the  MS.  containing  these  Evidences.  The  present  article  is  a 
transcription  of  such  facts  as  Robert  Honywood  of  Charing,  the  eldest 
son  of  Mary  Atwaters,  has  recorded  relating  to  his  family  pedigree  and 
the  title  of  his  estates. 

"  A  noate  of  the  birth  dayes  of  y^  children  of  Robart  Hony- 
wood and  Mary  at  Waters,  as  they  ar  ffownd  in  y"  church  booke, 
vtt.  the  dayes  of  ther  christeninges  : 

1.  Robart  Honiwood,  ther  eldest  child,  was  baptysed  18^ 
Septembris  1545. 

2.  Katherin  Honiwood  was  baptized  19  Decembr  1546. 

11.  Elizabeth  Honiwood  was  baptized  2  Dec.  1561. 

12.  Arthur  Honiwood  was  baptized  19  Febr  1563. 

13.  Susan  Honiwood  was  baptized  20  Martii  1564.

13.  Dorothe  Honiwood  was  baptized  30  Julii  1569. 
16.  Isaack  Honiwood  was  baptized  30  Novembr  1570. 
Mem.  The  rest  of  ye  childrens  byrth  dayes  are  not  knowne  by 

reason  y'^  church  book  was  hurt  at  Charing,  when  the  church 
ther  was  burnt  4  Augusti  1590. 

Mem.  I  maried  my  first  wife  Dorothe  Crooke  y^  3  of  July 
1569,  and  by  her  I  had  these  children  following:  vtt. 

1.  Dorothe  Honiwood,  my  first  child,  was  borne  at  London 
uppon  Thursday  y^  25  of  December  1572,  between  y*^  bowers  of 
xii  ^  and  one  in  y*^  morninge,  and  was  baptized  the  Sonday  fol- 
lowing at  y^  parish  church  of  St.  Gregoryes  neere  Powles  in 

*  Query,  "  28,"  inasmuch  as  he  says  of  himself,  in  another  place,  (vide  vol.  i. 
p.  569.)  "  I  was  borne  at  Royton  uppon  M's  eve's  eve  .  .  .  which  was  y<'  27  of

By  this  deed  MadocapRees  released  to  Meyrick  War,  son  of  Meyrick 
Vachan,  a  claim  which  he  had  possessed  on  the  land  of  Tyrtangustel  in 
Kylvey  in  consequence  of  certain  expenses  which  he  had  laid  out  there- 
on, probably  as  the  tenant,  or  possibly  as  a  mason  employed  in  certain 
buildings.  The  expenses  had  now  been  discharged,  and  his  lien  on  the 
property  consequently  ceased.  Tiie  form  of  the  deed,  as  originating 
from  such  circumstances^  is  believed  to  be  uuusual.

F.S.A.,  Ho7iorary  Librarian  of  the  Institution  of  South  Wales. 

By  this  charter  John  Turbervile  grants  to  David  de  la  Beare  and  Joan 
his  wife,  and  Peter  their  son,  the  whole  vill  of  Leysanteston,  to  be 
held  of  the  chief  lords  thereof  by  the  annual  payment  of  a  pair  of  gilt 
spurs,  or  sixpence,  at  Easter.  The  consideration  given  for  the  grant 
was  forty  marks  sterling. 

The  modern  name  or  site  of  Leysanteston  has  not  been  ascertained. 
It  was,  perhaps,  derived  from  the  Welsh  surname  Leyshun.

LANDS    IN    WESTMERELANDj    &;C.    1281. 

From  the  original  in  the  possession  of  W.  D.  Bruce,  Esq.  F.S.A. 

By  this  cirograph  the  lady  Margaret  de  Ros,  the  lady  of  Kendale,  re- 
leased to  William  de  Stirkeland,  ancestor  of  the  family  of  Strickland,  of 
Sizergh,  various  services  to  which  his  lands  had  hitherto  been  subject, 
viz.  all  his  lands  in  VVestmereland  free  from  the  pultura,  or  free-quar- 
tering, of  the  land-serjeants,  or  border  militia,  both  horsemen  and  foot- 
men ;  also  all  his  lands  in  Kendale  and  those  in  Staynton,  which  he  had 
already  given  to  his  son  William,  free  from  the  pultura  of  the  land- 
serjeants  and  foresters,  both  horsemen  and  footmen.  Both  parties  to  the 
cirograph  also  agree  that  in  future  the  proceedings  in  the  court  of  the 
lady  Margaret  should  be  conducted  without  the  pi'oduction  of  a  witness- 
man  on  either  side. 

As  respects  the  contents  of  this  charter,  it  may  be  compared  with 
others  contained  in  the  History  of  Westmorland,  by  Nicolson  and  Burn. 
By  one  of  these  (vol.  i.  p.  90.)  Peter  de  Brus,  the  father  of  the  lady 
Margaret,  granted  to  William  de  Stirkland  freedom  from  pulture  of  her 
foresters,  as  well  horsemen  as  footmen,  and  also  from  Witnesman,  in  all 
his  lands  of  Hakethorp,  Syresergh,  Natland,  and  other  places.  Two 
charters  of  John  de  Vipont,  relative  to  the  same  customs,  will  be  found 
in  the  same  volume,  pp.  23,  24 . 

Pulture  was  a  right  of  demanding  free  entertainment  (Nicolson  and 
Burn,  i.  p.  22.)  Two  etymologies  have  been  suggested  for  the  term, 
but  neither  of  them  appear  satisfactory.  Cowell,  in  his  Law  Dictionary, 
voce  "  Pultura,  an  examination,"  derives  it  from  pulsare,  as  if  from 
knocking  at  the  door.  Sir  Edward  Coke,  having  found  the  word  written 
puture,  thought  it  was  derived  hom  jjotare,  to  drink.  Several  instances 
of  the  word  under  the  form  putura  will  be  found  in  the  Law  Dictionary 
of  Cowell,  who,  under  that  word,  explains  the  custom  as  one  "  claimed 
by  keepers  in  forests,  and  sometimes  by  bailiffs  in  hundreds,  to  take 
man's  meat,  horse  meat,  and  dog's  meat,  of  the  tenants  gratis,  within 
the  perambulation  of  the  forest,  or  liberty  of  the  hundred  :"  after  having 
previously  given  Pultura  as  a  distinct  word,  as  above  mentioned.  It 
may  be  suggested  that  the  more  probable  otymology  is  to  be  drawn 
from  the  Latin  pids,  a  food  made  of  meal,  whence  pulticula  pottage, 
and  jmltarium  the  vessel  in  which  it  was  made.  It  is  well  known  that 
the  food  of  the  labouring  classes  in  ancient  times  was  chiefly  j)ulse. 
Thus,  in  the  book  of  Peterborough,  all   the    villeins  and  sokemen 


who  had  the  cihum  Domini,  were  fed  on  bread  and  beer,  but  not 
flesh.  Such  was  the  food  which  ihe  land-serjeants  and  foresters  of 
Kendale  would  have  the  right  to  claim. 

Some  notices  of  the  Witnesman  will  be  found  in  Nicolson  and  Burn 
ubi  supra.  It  is  evidently  a  Saxon  term  similar  Kofesterman,  and  equi- 
valent to  a  mainpernor  or  surety-man. 

Peter  de  Brus,  the  father  of  lady  Margaret^  died  in  7  Edw.  I.  Her 
husband  Robert  dc  Ros,  who  was  a  younger  son  of  Robert  Lord  Ros  of 
Hamlake  and  Werke^  was  previously  deceased,  in  2  Edw.  I. 

Sir  William  de  Lyndesey,  the  first  witness,  was  in  1281  the  lord  of 
a  moiety  of  the  barony  of  Kendal.  Sir  Gilbert  de  Curwen  was  lord  of 
Workington  in  Cumberland, 

WiUiam  de  Windeshover  occurs,  with  Alan  clericus,  as  a  witness  to  a 
charter  of  William  de  Stirkeland  in  17  Edw.  I.  (Nicolson  and  Burn,  i. 
90)  ;  and  again,  with  Thomas  de  Derlay,  another  of  the  witnesses  to  the 
present  document,  to  a  charter  of  the  same  party  (p.  210).

To  the  Editor  of  the  Topographer. 

B.  W.  G.'s  communication  on  the  family  of  Honywood,  has  re- 
minded me  of  my  possessing  some  information  pertinent  to  the  subject 
under  discussion,  which,  if  not  occupying  your  valuable  pages  impro- 
perly, I  will  now  communicate. 

In  the  year  1840,  when,  after  the  death  of  my  grandfather's  widow,Mrs. 
.^ntonina  Bayley,  I  compiled  my  family  pedigree  for  record  in  the-  Col- 
lege of  Arms,  I  found  it  necessary  to  pursue  an  inquiry  respecting  one 
of  the  Honywoods   with  which  my  ancestors  were  nearly  con- 


nected  a  century  ago,  and  from  whom  they  expected  to  inherit  consider* 
able  property;  but  from  which  they  were  excluded,  in  favour  of  rela- 
tives two  degrees  more  distant,  (viz.  the  Baronets  Honywood,)  by  the 
last  will  of  the  possessor,  Mr.  Frazer  Honywood. 

This  inquiry  brought  me  acquainted  with  an  old  volume,  evidently  a 
duplicate  of  that  described  by  B.  W.  G.,  a  then  in  the  possession  of 
Mrs.  Walters  of  Blackheath ;  from  whom,  through  the  mediation 
of  her  medical  attendant  (one  of  my  relatives,)  I  had  the  satisfaction  of 
perusing  it ;  though,  the  Honywoods  after  whom  I  inquired,  being  rather 
of  the  Baronetcy  branch  than  the  one  to  which  it  related,  my  investiga- 
tion received  no  affirmative  aid  from  the  volume.  Whether  this  book 
was  that  particular  duplicate  mentioned  by  B.  W.  G.,  I  cannot  say  ; 
but  I  recollect  seeing  at  Mrs.  Walters's  house  several  fine  old  por- 
traits, which  I  understood  to  be  members  of  the  Cotton  family.  Mrs. 
Walters  is  now  dead,  and  the  fate  of  the  book  no  doubt  might  be  learned 
at  Blackheath. 

While  touching  upon  the  Honywood  family,  I  would  wish  to  draw 
your  attention  to  a  very  remarkable  misstatement  of  the  pedigree  in 
Wotton's  Baronetage  1741,  whereby  their  branch  of  the  family  is  brought 
a  whole  degree  nearer  than  the  truth  to  the  rich  banker  Mr.  Frazer 
Honywood  ;  and  this  by  omitting  the  very  generations  and  marriages 
which  connected  him  with  nearer  relatives.  After  his  death  the  truth 
came  out ;  and  Hasted  was  the  first  to  put  it  in  print,  viz.  in  his  elaborate 
History  of  Kent ;  but  there  can  be  no  doubt,  that  it  blinded  Frazer 
Honywood  to  the  true  state  of  his  pedigree,  and  probably  induced  him 
to  leave  the  bulk  of  his  immense  property  to  the  Baronets  (there  repre- 
sented as  being  of  as  near  kin  to  him  as  any  one  else,  which  was  very 
far  from  the  truth,)  and  to  cut  out  its  more  rightful  expectants. 

The  way  the  true  pedigree  came  out  was  this  :  Frazer  Honywood,  by 
his  last  will,  1 763,  while  devising  the  Mailing  Abbey  and  Hampstead 
estates  to  Ins  Jbi0'th  cousin,  the  Baronet  Honywood,  left  also  a  legacy  of 
20,000?,  to  be  divided  among  his  other  relatives.  After  his  death,  in 
17C4,  more  than  four  hundred  persons  put  in  claims  for  a  share  of  this 
celebrated  bequest  {vide  Ambler's  Reports)  ;  but  the  majority  were  of 
course  set  aside.  By,  however,  an  interlocutory  decree  in  Chancery, 
17G9,  a  portion  of  it  was  assigned  to  the  testator's  second  cousins,  Anne 
and  Margaretta  Burren,  (the  former  of  whom  notices  it  in  her  will, 
1770,  as  mentioned  in  page  65  of  the  present  volume  j)  these  ladies 
being  maternal  aunts  of  the  said  William  Barnet,  previously  Barry,  to 
whom,  at  the  death  of  the  latter,  the  sum  went  as  her  residuary  legatee, 
A.D,  1784.  Wotton's  pedigree  stands  thus  :

According  to  Wotton's  version  of  the  pedigree,  the  Baronet  was  half 
or  second  cousin  to  the  rich  banker  ;  and  except  his  wife  (who  could 
not  be  easily  concealed),  and  the  Bakers,  who  were  no  nearer  than 
themselves,  they,  the  Baronets,  were  the  most  rightful  successors  to  his 

That  Mr.  Honywood  was  led  to  believe  he  had  no  nearer  relatives  is 
probable  from  his  last  will ;  but  I  shall  now  disclose  the  actual  facts  of 
the  case.

By  tliis  pedigree  it  will  be  seen  that,  excepting  Mrs,  Merrell's 
issue  (which  I  believe  expired  in  his,  Frazcr  Honywood's,  lifetime) 
he  had  no  relatives  nearer  than  second  cousins  ;  viz.  the  descendants 
of  brothers  or  sisters  of  his  maternal  grand-parents  Frazer,  the  de- 
scendants of  the  sisters  of  his  grandfather  Honywood,  and  the  descend- 
ants of  the  sisters  of  his  grandmother  Honywood,  previously  Pycheford  j 
with  which  last  relatives  (the  Burrens  d)  his  uncle  Edward  Honywood 
had  lived  in  intimate  friendship,  as  his  last  will  plainly  proves.  That 
the  great  banker  had  Frazer  relations  is  also  certain,  for  he  mentions 
them  in  his  will :  but  the  Burrens,  &c.  were  quite  as  near  ;  and,  I  may 
add,  were  descended  from  that  common  ancestor  with  him,  whence  his 
family  obtained  the  foundation  of  all  their  wealth,  viz,  Wilham  Pycheford, 
in  whom  the  two  families  were  coheirs  ;  added  to  which,  I  very  strongly 
suspect  that  the  Honywood's  bank  was  only  a  continuation  of  the  very 
extensive  goldsmith  business  of  their  uncle  by  marriage,  Richard  Hodi- 
low,  (maternal  grandfather  of  the  Misses  Burren  ;)  Richard  Hodilow 
having  no  son  of,  his  own  to  succeed  him  therein  ;  so  that  the  Burrens 
were  fully  entitled  to  look  for  as  much  as  any  other  of  the  cousins,  if  not 
more,  seeing  that  the  property  (and  that  at  Hampstead  most  especially) 
was  derived  from  their  ancestors  ;  and,  no  doubt,  had  they  been  in  a 
position  to  have  induced  the  rich  banker  to  live  like  his  uncle  at 
Hampstead,  instead  of  spending  half  the  year  in  Kent  near  the  Baronets, 
justice  would  have  been  done.  As  it  was,  however,  they  had  only  the 
mortification  of  proving  themselves  far  closer  kindred  than  the  principal 
devisee,  (they  being  second  cousins  and  he  s.  fourth  cousin,)  viz.  to 
obtain  a  share  of  the  charitable  bequest  to  the  testator's  pauper  rela- 
tions— for  otherwise  they  were  not  named  in  his  will. 

I  presume  that  a  full  pedigree  must  have  been  compiled  for  the  Court 
of  Chancery  (and  there  deposited),  after  Mr.  Honywood's  decease.  I 
made  a  very  extensive  search  in  Chancery  Lane,  both  personally  and  by 
deputy,  but  was  unable  to  find  such  a  document ;  indeed,  in  searching 
the  calendars,  the  Cause  was  soon  lost  sight  of,  so  that  I  have  reason  to 
suppose  some  of  the  parties  must  have  died,  and  the  suit  been  renewed 
in  other  names.  The  facts,  however,  which  I  have  here  communicated, 
are  fully  substantiated  by  the  authorities  I  have  mentioned;  and  my  motive 
for  troubling  you  with  this  prolix  history  is,  that  the  "  four  hundred  " 
relatives  putting  in  claims  for  a  share  of  the  legacy,  renders  [the  case  a 
not  very  inappropriate  supplement  to  that  of  tlie  extraordinary  fecundity 
of  Mary  Honywood,  previously  Waters.  No  doubt  the  Honywood  vo- 
lume, detailing  her  progeny,  was  brought  into  request  at  Frazer  Hony- 
wood's decease.  I  am.  Sir,  yours,  &c.

YouGHAL  is  a  considerable  sea-port  town  in  the  south  of 
Ireland,  situate  at  the  mouth  of  the  river  Blackwater  and  die 
eastern  extremity  of  the  county  of  Cork.  It  was  anciently 
called  Ochill,  which  signifies  wood  or  forest,  many  remains  of 
which  are  constantly  found  beneath  the  surface  of  the  neigh- 
bourino-  country. 

The  walls  of  this  town  still  remain  in  tolerable  preservation, 
althoui^h  we  are  informed  it  suffered  much  in  various  sieoes.  ^ 
It  was  taken  and  sacked  by  the  Earl  of  Desmond  in  the  year  1579. 
It  was  again  assailed  by  Fitz-Gerald,  Seneschal  of  Imokilly,  in 
the  year  1582.  It  was  again  besieged  by  the  Earl  of  Castle- 
haven  in  1641,  and  defended  successfully  by  the  great  Earl  of 
Cork  with  much  loss  to  the  Irish  army. 

Youglml  was  fn-st  incorporated  in  the  second  year  of  the  reign 
of  King  Edward  the  Fourth,  through  the  interest  of  Thomas 
Earl  of  Desmond,  who,  in  14G3,  was  made  Lord  Deput\'  of 
Ireland.  It  has  charters  from  Richard  III.,  Henry  VII.,  Eliza- 
beth, and  James  I. 

The  religious-houses  founded  in  this  town  were  two;  one 
situated  at  the  north,  the  other  at  the  south  end.  That  on 
the  north  was  founded  in  12G8  by  Thomas  Fitz-Maurice  Fitz- 
Gerald  for  Friars  Preachers ;  and  after  the  dissolution  of  such 
establishments  was  granted  to  Sir  Walter  Raleigh.  The  only 
part  of  it  now  remaining  is  the  western  window,  and  very  little 
of  the  side  walls.  The  south  abbey  has  been  completely  removed. 
It  was  founded  by  Maurice  Fitz-Gerald  in  1231,  or  according 
to  Holinshed  in  1229,  for  friars  of  the  Franciscan  order.  This 
was  first  granted  to  George  Isham,  and  afterwards  purchased  by 
Sir  Richard  Boyle,  first  Earl  of  Cork.

But  the  most  important  object  of  antiquity  in  Youglial  is  the 
collegiate  church  of  the  Blessed  Virgin  Mary.  The  college  was 
founded  by  Thomas  Fitz  Gerald,  Earl  of  Desmond,  on  27th 
December  1464,  after  which  he  rebuilt  and  beautified  the  church. 
It  is  an  interesting  remnant  of  by-gone  days,  though  much 
disfigured  by  modern  alterations.  The  nave  is  about  forty- 
five  yards  long  and  twenty-two  broad,  and  is  the  only  part 
now  used  for  the  celebration  of  divine  worship.  The  main 
walls  at  each  side  of  the  centre  aisle  are  cut  into  six  lofty 
pointed  arches,  behind  which  there  are  back  aisles  running 
parallel.  The  chancel  or  choir  is  without  a  roof,  but  the  walls 
and  windows  are  little  injured  by  time.  The  east  window  (of 
course  without  glass)  is  in  other  respects  quite  perfect,  and  pre- 
sents a  magnificent  and  most  beautiful  specimen  of  the  architec- 
ture of  its  period.  On  the  north  side  of  the  church  stands  a 
square  tower  about  fifty  feet  high,  overlooking  the  town  walls, 
which  are  very  near,  and  evidently  intended  to  answer  as  well  for 
a  place  of  defence  as  for  a  belfry,  to  which  purpose  it  is  now 
appropriated.  There  are  two  chapels  attached  to  this  church, 
one  north,  the  other  south. 

The  latter  was  called  the  Chauntry  of  our  Blessed  Saviour. 
Richard  Boyle,  the  first  Earl  of  Cork  of  that  family,  purchased  it 
from  the  mayor  and  corporation  March  29th  1606,  and  in  it 
erected  a  splendid  monument  for  himself  and  family.  This  is 
composed  of  white,  red,  grey,  and  black  marble  of  the  most 
expensive  kinds;  it  is  admirably  sculptured  and  constructed, 
and  reaches  nearly  to  the  roof  of  the  chapel,  which  is  very  lofty. 
The  effigy  of  the  Earl  (exceedingly  well  executed)  is  represented 
in  a  splendid  suit  of  engraved  russet  and  gold  armour  of  the 
reign  of  James  the  First.  It  has  double  tassets,  and  is  richly 
ornamented  throughout.  His  head  is  uncovered  (the  face  being 
probably  a  complete  likeness),  and  he  leans  on  his  left  hand 
supported  by  a  cushion.  Over  his  shoulders,  and  the  paldrons 
of  the  armour,  are  capes  or  lappets  of  an  earl's  mantle  of  state, 
which  hangs  down  behind  to  his  feet.  Underneath,  along  the 
ledge  of  the  moiiument,  are  a  number  of  small  figures  repre- 
senting his  children,  with  the  dates  of  their  births  on  their  re- 
spective pedestals,  viz.  :  1st.  Roger  Boyle,  natus  1  August  1606. 
2nd.  Richard  Boyle,  natus  20  October  1612.  3rd.  Galfridus 
Boyle,  natus  10  April  1616.  (He  was  drowned  in  the  college 


well.)  4th.  Lewis  Boyle,  natus  23  Martii  1619.  5th.  Alicia 
Boyle,  nata  20  Martii  1607.  6th.  Sarah  Boyle,  nata  29  Martii 
1609.  7th.  Letitia  Boyle,  nata  23  April  IGIO.  8th.  Joana 
Boyle,  nata  14  Junii  1611.  9th.  Catharina  Boyle,  nata  22  Martii 
1614.  At  the  Earl's  feet,  kneeling,  under  a  canopy  supported 
by  rich  pillars  of  costly  red  marble,  is  the  figure  of  his  first 
wife,  Joan,  daughter  and  coheir  of  William  Appesly,  Esq. 
Her  dress  represents  the  richest  figured  satin  or  velvet,  of  a 
dark  purple  colour.  She  wears  a  ruff,  and  her  hair  quite  erect 
and  off  her  face  and  forehead.  At  his  head,  is  the  effigy  of 
his  second  wife  (the  Countess  of  Cork),  in  the  same  posture,  and 
wearing  a  Countess'  robe  of  state  with  a  ruff.  She  was  daughter 
of  Sir  Geoffry  Fenton. 

The  faces  particularly  of  these  figures  are  admirably  sculp- 
tured. Over  each  is  an  escucheon,  of  pure  white  marble,  im- 
paling Boyle,  with  their  arms  respectively,  viz.  Boyle,  Party  per 
bend  crenelle,  argent  and  gules.  For  Appesly,  Barry  of  six  ar- 
gent and  gules,  with  a  canton  ermine  in  dexter  corner.  For 
Fenton,  Argent,  a  cross  azure  between  four  fleurs-de-lis  sable. 
At  the  top  lies  the  effigy  of  the  Earl's  mother,  ^  Joan,  daughter 
of  Robert  Naylor,  Esq.  of  Canterbury,  habited  in  the  full  dress 
of  Queen  Elizabetii's  day,  with  large  straw  hat,  ruff,  and  far- 
dingale.  And  over  her  again  are  the  full  arms  of  Boyle 
alone,  with  the  EarPs  crest  and  supporters,  as  at  present  used  by 
the  Earl  of  Cork  and  Orrery.     There  are  also  these  lines  : 

"  Precatio  Viventis. 

Quam  patre,  quam  prole,  et  gemino  quam  conjuge  faustam 
Fecisti,  O  faustam  fac  faciendo  tuam." 

In  the  centre,  over  the  effigy  of  the  Earl,  is  a  large  surface 
of  black  stone,  on  which  are  the  following  inscriptions : 

"  Richard  Earl  of  Cork  married  two  wives,  the  first 
Joan,  one  of  the  two  daughters  and  coheirs  of  William  Appesly, 

^  Her  brother,  Robert  Naylor,  was  Dean  of  Limerick,  and  his  daughter  Margaret 
was  married  to  John  Drew,  Esq.  of  Kilwinny,  co.  Cork,  and  of  Meanus,  co.  Kerry. 
The  Earl  of  Cork  was  a  party  to  the  marriage  settlement,  still  preserved,  and  gave 
his  cousin  an  additional  fortune.  The  Dean  also  had  a  son,  who  seems  to  have 
been  a  military  person,  from  his  portrait  in  armour  at  Balliiiatray  house,  and  anotlier 
in  possession  of  Rev.  P.  W.  Drew,  Strand  House,  Youghal.  See  Drew  pedigree, 
page  212.  He  never  married.  Margaret  Naylor's  costly  and  embroidered  purse 
is  also  still  preserved  in  the  Drew  family.

who  died  in  travail  of  her  first  son,  which  did  not  survived  her. 
The  second  wife  was  Katliarine,  the  only  daughterof  Sir  Geoff'ry 
Fenton,  Knt.  Secretary  of  State  in  Ireland,  by  wliom  he  had 
issue  7  sons  and  8  daughters." 

Under  this  are  three  escucheons :  first,  Boyle  and  Appesly 
impaled.  2nd.  Boyle  with  Appesly  and  Fenton  quartered ; 
and  3rd.  Boyle  with  Fenton  impaled ;  and  this  inscription  : 

"  The  Lady  Margaret  Boyle,  eighth  daughter  of  the 
Earl  of  Cork,  died,  and  lyeth  here  intombed." 

On  the  right  side,  in  the  manner  of  a  genealogical  table,  arc 
the  following  inscriptions,  with  respective  coats  of  arms : 

"  Sir  Richard  Boyle,  Knt.  son  and  heir  apparent  to  Richard 
Earl  of  Cork,  married  Elizabeth,  eldest  of  the  two  daughters 
and  coheirs  of  Henry  Lord  Clifford  Earl  of  Cumberland,  and 
hath  issue." 

"  Sir  Lem'is  Boyle,  Knt.  Lord  Boyle,  Baron  of  Bandon- 
bridge  and  Lord  Viscount  Boyle,  Kinalmeaky,  second  son  of 
Richard  Earl  of  Cork,  married  the  Lady  Elizabeth,  daughter 
of  Sir  William  Fielding,  Knt.  Lord  Baron  of  Newenham  Padox, 
Viscount  Fielding  and  Earl  of  Denbigh.  Slain  in  the  battle  of 
Liscarrol,  Sept.  3rd  1642." 

"  Sir  Roger  Boyle,  Knt.  Lord  Boyle,  Baron  of  Broghill, 
third  son  of  Richard  Earl  of  Cork,  married  the  Lady  Margaret, 
daughter  of  Theophilus  Lord  Howard  of  Walden,  Earl  of 

"  Francis  Boyle,  Esq.,  fourth  son  of  Richard  Earl  of  Cork, 
married  Elizabeth,  daughter  of  Sir  Thomas  Killigrew,  Knt.  late 
Vice-Chamberlain  to  Mary  Queen  of  England." 

"  Robert  Boyle,  Esq.,  fifdi  son  of  Richard  Earl  of  Cork." 

"  Roger  Boyle,  eldest  son  of  Richard  Earl  of  Cork,  being 
a  scholar  at  Deptford,  in  Kent,  died  there  the  10th  of  October 
1615,  and  there  lies  intombed." 

"  Geoffry  Boyle,  third  son  of  Richard  Earl  of  Cork,  died 
young  on  die  20di  Jan.  1616,  and  lieth  here  intombed." 

To  each  of  these  are  escucheons  of  Boyle  impaling  their  re- 
spective matches;  and  next,  on  the  left  hand,  are  die  following- 
inscriptions  relative  to  the  Earl's  daughters,  impaling  Boyle,  with 
the  arms  of  their  respective  husbands. 

"  David  Lord  Barry,  Lord  Viscount  Buttevant,  first 
Earl  of  Barrymore,  married  the  Lady  Alice  Boyle,  first 
daughter  of  Richard,  Earl  of  Cork," 


"  Robert  Lord  Digby,  Baron  of  Geashil,  married  the 
Lady  Sarah  Boyle,  second  daughter  of  Richard  Earl  of  Cork, 
being  then  the  widow  of  Sir  Thomas  Moore,  Knt.,  son  and  heir 
to  Garret  Lord  Moore,  Lord  Viscount  of  Droglieda." 

"  Colonel  George  Goring,  son  and  heir  to  Sir  George 
Goring,  Knt.  Lord  Baron  Goring  of  Hurstpierpoint,  married 
the  Lady  Lettice  Boyle,  third  daughter  of  Richard  Earl  of  Cork." 

"  George  Fitz-Gerald,  Earl  or  Kildare,  married  the 
Lady  Joan  Boyle,  fourth  daughter  of  Richard  Earl  of  Cork." 

"  Arthur  Jones,  Esq.  son  and  heir  of  Sir  Roger  Jones, 
Knt.  Lord  Viscount  Ranelagh,  married  the  Lady  Katherine

"  Sir  Arthur  Loftus,  Knt.  son  and  heir  of  Sir  Adam  Loftus,

"  Charles  Rich,  Esq.  second  son  of  Robert  Lord  Rich 
of  Leize,  Earl  of  Warwick,  married  the  Lady  Mary  Boyle, 
the  seventh  daughter  of  Richard  Earl  of  Cork." 

In  the  centre,  between  these  inscriptions,  is  the  following  : — 

"  Richardus  Boyle,  miles,  dominus  Boyle  baro  de  Youghal, 
Vicecomes  Dungarvan,  Comes  Corcagiensis,  dominus  sum- 
mus  hujus  regni  Hibernite  thesaurarius,  et  de  privato  concilio

mentum  sacrum  memoriae. 

Ipse  de  se. 
Sic  posui  tumulum,  superest  intendere  votis, 
Parce  anima3,  carnem  solvito,  Christe  veni." 

Beneath  this  are  the  following,  viz. 

"  Hie  jacet  corpus  reverendi  patris  Johannis  Boyle,  sacraj 
theologice  doctoris,  episcopi  Corcagiensis,  Clonensis  et  Rossen-

nis  cultor  praecipuus,  qui  obiit  29  die  Septembris  1642,  annoque 
astatis  suae  38." 

This  monument  is  guarded  by  an  iron  railing  painted  red ;  at 
each  end  of  which  are  escucheons  formed  of  iron  plates,  and 
painted  with  the  arms  of  Boyle  impaled  with  Appesly  and  Fen- 
ton  respectively,  and  in  the  centre  a  lozenge  (doubtless)  for  his 
mother,  viz.  Quarterly,  1st.  Ermine,  a  cock  gules  and  chief  azure; 
2nd,  Argent,  three  horses  passant  sable. 

This  beautiful  and  superb  monument,  which  had  been  rapidly 
falling  to  decay,  has  been  recently  restored  in  the  most  perfect 
manner  by  order  of  Francis  E.  Currey,  Esq.  the  Duke  of  Devon- 
shire's agent  in  Ireland,  and  under  the  superintendence  of  the 
Rev.  P.  M.  Drew.  Since  the  restoration  of  this  chancel,  the 
effigies  of  a  nobleman  and  his  wife,  supposed  to  be  the  Earl  and 
Countess  of  Desmond,  in  the  costume  of  the  13th  century,  have 
been  deposited  within  it.  Where  these  originally  lay,  is  not 

On  the  next  wall  in  this  chapel  is  a  beautiful  tablet  of  white 
Italian  marble  in  the  shape  of  an  escucheon,  to  the  memory  of 
the  famous  Lord  Broghill,  the  first  Earl  of  Orrery,  third  son  of 
the  Earl  of  Cork : 

"  Memorise  Sacrum 

Rogeri  Boyle,  primi  Comitis 

de  Orrery,  et  Baronis 

de  Brohill, 

Qui  dum  vixit  multis  pariter  et  summis 

Honoribus  et  Officiis  fungebatur ; 

Mortuus  vero  summo  cum  viventiuin  luctu 

obiit  decimo  sexto 


die  Octobris  Anno  Domini  1679, 
annoque  aetatis  suae  59 ; 
De  quo  non  hie  plura  requirat  lector, 
quoniam  omnia  de  ingenio  et  moribus 

vel  ex  fama, 
vel  ex  operibus,  dignoscere  possit." 
Near  the  wall,  immediately  opposite  to  the  Earl  ot"  Cork's 
monument,  is  a  plain  flat  stone  with  the  following  inscription  : 

"  Here  lies  the  body  of  Sir  Edward  Villieks,  who  dyed 
Lord  President  of  Munster,  anno  Dom.  16 — ." 

Then  follows  this  additional  inscription,  in  a  kind  of  running 
hand,  and  most  probably  written  at  an  after  period : 
"  Munster  may  curse  the  time  that  Villiers  came. 
To  make  us  worse,  by  leaving  such  a  name 
Of  noble  parts,  as  none  can  imitate, 
But  those  whose  hearts  are  married  to  the  state  ; 
But  if  they  press  to  imitate  his  fame  his  fame, 
Munster  may  bless  the  time  that  Villiers  came." 
This  Sir  Edward  Villiers  was  ancestor  to  the  Earls  of  Gran- 
dison  of  Dromana,  co.  Waterford ;  which  title  is  now  extinct  in 
that  family,  who  nevertheless  are  at  present  represented  by  Lord 
Stuart  de  Decies  of  Dromana.     He  was  also  ancestor  of  the 
Earls  of  Jersey. 

In  the  same  chapel  there  is  also  a  large  altar  tomb,  on  which 
lie  the  effigies  of  a  man  and  his  wife,  cut  rudely  in  limestone, 
and  apparently  in  the  costume  of  the  period  of  Queen  Mary ; 
the  man  wears  a  small  ruff,  and  a  civic  gown.  On  the  stone, 
supporting  their  feet^  is  the  following  inscription  : 

"  Here  lyeth  the  bodies  of  Richard  Bennet  and  Ellis 
Barry  his  wife,  the  first  foundress  of  this  chapel,  which,  being 
demolished  in  time  of  rebellion  and  their  tomb  defaced,  was 
re-edified  by  Richard  Lord  Boyle,  Baron  of  Youghal,  who,  for 
reviving  the  memory  of  them,  repaired  this  tomb,  and  had  their 
effigies  cut  in  stone  placed  thereon,  Anno  Domini  16  J  9." 

We  next  pass  to  the  nave  of  the  church,  at  the  extreme  end 
of  which,  immediately  before  the  communion  table,  on  a  plain 
flat  stone,  is  the  following  inscription  : 

"  Here  lieth  the  body  of  John  Fitz-Gerald,  of  the  Decies, 
who  departed  this  life  the  1st  of  March,  An.  Dom.  1664.  Also, 
here  lieth  the  body  of  Katherine  his  wife,  daughter  of  the 
Lord  John  Power,  Baron  of  Curroghmore,  who  departed  this 


life  22ik1  of  August,  An.  Dom.  1660,  who  were  removed  by  the 
Earl  of  Grandison,  their  grandson,  to  this  vault,  in  the  year 
1736.  And  here  also  are  interred  his  two  daughters,  the  Ladies 
Anne  and  Katherine  Villiers.  Also  his  son  the  Right  Hon. 
William  Lord  Villiers,  who  dyed  the  16th  day  of  December 

The  last  Earl  of  Grandison  of  the  Vilhers  family  and  his 
Countess  were  interred  in  this  vault,  thoutjh  no  inscription 
mentions  it.  The  vault  was  explored  not  long  ago,  the  open- 
ing of  it  having  become  necessary  in  consequence  of  alterations 
in  the  church,  and  the  Earl's  coffin,  with  a  richly  gilt  coronet  at 
its  head,  and  all  its  other  varied  ornaments,  were  found  in  a  per- 
fect state. 

On  the  wall,  at  the  right-hand  side  of  the  communion  table, 
there  is  a  very  handsome  monument  of  white  Italian  marble, 
with  this  inscription : 

"  Sacred  to  the  memory  of 
Grice  Smyth,  Esq. 
of  Ballinatre,  in  the  county   of  Waterford, 
who,  after  having  endured 
a  most  painful  illness  for  ten  years, 
with  perfect  resignation  to  the  will  of  God, 
departed  this  life  in  the  city  of  Limerick, 
on   the  1st  day  of  January,  An.   Dom.    1816, 
in  the  51st  year  of  his  age. 
His  remains  are  deposited  near  this  place, 
in  the  same  tomb 
with  those  of  his  ancestors,^  the  Earls  of  Cork  and  Burlington. 
As  a  brother,  husband,  parent,  friend, 
he  was  most  affectionate,  generous,  and  sincere. 
This  monument  is  erected  to  his  memory 
by  his  widow, 
Mary  Broderick  Smyth, 
daughter  to  the  late  Henry  Mitchell,  Esq. 
of  Mitchell's  fort, 
in  testimony  of  her  esteem  and  love." 
"  As  many  as  I  love,  I  rebuke  and  chasten ;  be  zealous  there- 
fore and  repent."    Rev.  iii  chap.  19  ver. 

'^  The  Earls  of  Cork  and  Burlington  can  hardly  be  considered  ancestors  of  the 
Smyth  family.    See  the  relationship  specified  on  Lord  Cork's  momimeiit. 


On  this  monument  there  is  the  figure  of  a  female  weeping 
over  an  urn,  extremely  well  executed,  and  at  the  top,  the  armo- 
rial bearings  of  the  family,  carved  in  marble  and  coloured,  viz. 
1  and  4,  Argent,  on  a  bend  azure'  three  mascles  or,  between 
two  unicorn's  heads  erased  sable,  for  Smyth.  2nd,  Quar- 
terly gules  and  azure,  on  a  bend  argent  three  boars  courant 
sable.  3rd,  Argent,  a  chevron  between  three  bucks  passant 
sable.  On  an  escucheon  of  pretence,  Sable,  on  a  fess  between 
three  mascles  or  three  trefoils  of  the  first.  Crest :  out  of  a  ducal 
coronet.  Gules,  a  demi-bull  salient  argent,  armed  or.  Motto, 
"  Cum  plena  magis." 

On  the  wall  immediately  opposite  is  a  tablet  of  white  marble, 
with  the  following  inscription  : 

"  Sacrum  Memorise

Underneath  an  escucheon,  a  chevron  between  two  pheons  in 

chief,  and  a  lion  passant  in  base.    Crest :  a  coronet  supporting  a 

pheon.     Motto,  "  L'Amour  et  Loyaute." 

On  the  same  side  of  the  church  is  another  tablet  of  white 
marble,  and  a  female  head  in  relief  over  it,  with  the  following 
inscription : 

"  In  the  fimiily  vault 

near  this  place,  lie  interred 

the  remains  of  Elizabeth  Hayman, 


daughter  of  the  late  Rev.  Atkin  Hayman, 
who  departed  this  Hfe 
on  the  29th  day  of  January  1790. 
Samuel  Hayman  erected  this  monument 
as  a  last  tribute  of   affection 
to  a  sister 
who  was  beloved  and  is  regretted  by  all  who  knew  her. 
"  Lo  !   soft  Remembrance  drops  a  pious  tear  ; 
And  holy  Friendship  sits  a  mourner  here." 
A  little  further  on,  there  is  another  large  tablet  of  plain  white 
marble,  with  this  inscription,  viz. 

"  In  the  cemetery  of  Kilnerath, 

among  the  ashes  of  her  parents  and  relatives, 

are  deposited  the  remains  of 

Eliza,  daughter  of  Henry  White,  Esq.  of  Newross, 

and  wife  of  Walter  Atkin  Hayman,  Esq. 

of  Youghal. 

She  died  at  Carmarthen,  South  Wales, 

on  her  return  from  the 

Hot  Wells, 

August  22nd  1800,  aged  34. 


This  tablet  was  erected  to  remind  thee, 

that,  although  neither  filial  piety, 

conjugal  affection,  correct  conduct,  nor  sincere  religion, 

can  arrest  the  stroke  of  death  ; 

yet  a  life  like  hers,] 

employed  in  every  Christian  excellence, 

holds  forth  a  bright  example, 

supplies  fortitude, 

confirms  the  hope  of  immortality, 

and  disarms   death  of  its  terror.'^ 

At  the  top,  an  escutcheon  of  white  marble,  bearing  a  chevron 

charged  with  three  cinquefoils  between  three  martlets.     (The 

colours  not  defined.) 

There  are  also  two  more  tablets  of  white  marble  in  this  part 
of  the  church,  which  have  been  very  recently  fixed  there.  One 
to  the  memory  of  Thomas  John,  of  Youghal,  merchant,  who 
died  25th  April  1837,  in  his  84th  year;  the  other  to  the  memory 
of  John  Iiiwin,  M.D.  who  died  4th  July  1843,  in  his  38th  year. 


On  the  flag  stones  in  the  centre  aisle  may  be  read  the  follow- 
ing inscriptions,  viz. 

*'  Here  lieth  the  body  of  Robert  Benger,  who  departed  this 
life  January  10th  1761,  aged  51.  Also  the  bodies  of  his  father, 
mother,  and  brother." 

**  Here  lies  the  body  of  James  Sprat,  M.D.,  not  more  dis- 
tinguished for  his  skill  than  probity  in  his  profession  ;  a  tender, 
humane,  honest  physician,  who  departed  this  life  31st  day  of  May, 
in  the  year  of  our  Lord  1766,  and  in  the  51st  year  of  his  age." 

"  Here  lieth  the  body  of  the  Rev.  Nathaniel  France, 
Chaunter  of  the  Cathedral  of  Cloyne,  and  Curate  assistant  of 
Youghal  for  nearly  10  years.     Died  July  1st  1770,  aged  72." 

"  Here  lieth  the  body  of  Peter  Goodwin,  Burgess  of  Youg- 
hal, who  died  28  Sept.  1660." 

On  a  stone  tablet  near  the  font  is  this  inscription :  "^'  Here 
lie  the  remains  of  Alderman  John  Mills,  and  his  children." 

At  the  foot  of  the  stairs  leading  to  the  north  gallery,  "  Ro- 
bert Ball,  Alderman,  departed  this  life  1 1th  January  1724. 
His  son  Henry,  Alderman,  died  2nd  June  1741,  aged  56." 

In  the  centre  of  the  great  middle  aisle  are  the  following  in- 
scriptions : 

"  Elizabeth  Giles,  wife  of  John  Luther,  died  the  4th  day 
of  December  1661.  Alderman  Luther  ^  died  18th  of  Decem- 
ber 1697,  aged  74." 

"  Richard  Giles,  ^  several  times  Mayor  of  the  town,  and 
nephew  of  the  above  Elizabeth,  departed  this  life  in  1 727." 

On  some  oak  panels,  which  now  form  the  back  of  a  seat  near 
the  passage  leading  to  the  north  back  aisle,  is  the  following  in- 
scription : 

"  A  burial  for  Christas 
Hartford  here  is  made. 
Where  he  and  his  intend 
For  to  be  laid." 
At  the  top  are  painted  the  royal  arms,  indicating  that  Hart- 
ford was  once  Mayor  of  Youghal,  which  was  the  case  in  the 
year  1618.     Immediately  under  is  an  escucheon.  Gules,  on  a 
fess  or,  three  trefoils  sable.     Crest,  a  leopard  passant,  armed, 

<=  According  to  the  list  of  Mayors  in  the  History  of  Youghal,  by  Thomas  Lord, 
John  Luther  was  Mayor  in  the  year  1666. 
"  Richard  Giles  was  Mayor  of  Youghal  in  1664, 1687,  and  in  1692. 


chained,  and  collared,  holding  a  trefoil  in  his  dexter  paw.  This 
is  for  Hartford.  On  the  right  with  this  coat  is  impaled,  Azure, 
a  chevron  or,  between  two  fleurs-de-lis  in  chief,  and  a  lion  ram- 
pant in  base,  argent.  On  the  left  is  also  impaled  with  Hartford, 
Argent,  three  roses,  two  and  one.  These  arms  no  doubt  be- 
longed to  C.  Hartford's  wives. 

On  a  wooden  tablet  on  the  wall  of  the  north  chapel,  now 
forming  the  vestry-room,  is  the  following  inscription : 
"  The  Jones  family. 

"  Near  this  spot  lie  the  remains  of  Edward  Jones,  son  of 
the  Rev.  Matthew  Jones,  Archdeacon  of  Lismore,  and  grandson 
of  Edward  Jones,  Bishop  of  Cloyne.  Also  the  remains  of  Mat- 
thew Jones,  collector  of  Youghal,  son  of  the  above  Edward 
Jones,  father  to  Melina  Hayman.  The  other  relatives  of  Ed- 
ward Jones  are  also  interred  in  the  same  place." 

Near  this  there  are  also  other  wooden  tablets  commemoratinfj 
the  charitable  bequests  of  a  few  individuals  to  the  poor  of  Youg- 
hal, viz. 

"John  Perry,  Esq.  who  died  October  29,  1712,  bequeathed 
the  interest  of  300/.  to  be  distributed  to  the  poor  at  the  church 
door  every  29  day  of  May."  On  this  tablet  there  is  an  escucheon, 
viz.  Gules,  three  pears  proper,  on  a  chief  argent  a  demi-leopard 

Another  benefactor  to  the  poor  was  a  Mr.  Spencer,  who 
died  in  1696;  his  armorial  bearings  are.  Argent,  a  fess  between 
three  lions  rampant  gules. 

Also  Mr.  John  Re  a,  who  bequeathed  the  interest  of  100/. 
Two  of  his  lineal  descendants  received  some  of  it,  together  with 
the  other  Protestant  poor  of  the  parish,  at  the  last  distribution. 

"  Thomas  Cozens,  Esq.  of  Young  Grove,  in  the  county  of 
Cork,  left  17/.  3.9.  Sd.  to  be  distributed  annually.  He  died  27 
Nov.  1783. 

"  Alderman  Thomas  Croker,  who  died  4th  of  January  1718, 
aged  66,  left  4/.  per  ann.  to  the  poor  of  the  corporation,  to  be 
distributed  every  St.  Thomas's  day.'^ 

On  a  flag  stone,  immediately  near  the  baptismal  font  (which  is 
very  ancient,  of  carved  stone,  with  a  curiously  carved  wooden 
cover)  there  is  this  inscription  :  "  Here  lieth  the  bodies  of  Mary, 
wife  of  Alderman  Gregory  Salter,  who  died  1.5  Sept.  1733, 
aged  76 :  also  of  her  daughters  Allice  and  Hannah,  and  Re- 


BFXCA   Croker.    Also  Alderman  Gregory  Salter,  who  died 
Sth  May  1750." 

Near  this,  on  another  flag-stone  : 

«  Sarah  Giles,  1708." 

We  nov/  pass  into  the  Vestry-room,  formed  out  of  part  of  the 
north  chapel,  and  which  contains  some  monuments. 

There  is  a  large  and  rudely  carved  tombstone  fastened  in  the 
wall,  with  this  date  "  1557;"  it  formerly  covered  the  tomb  of 
the  Uniacke  family  near  this  spot ;  the  characters  are  illegible. 

There  is  a  large  and  rudely  formed  monument  to  the  Mead 
i'amily  here.  They  seem  to  have  been  nearly  connected  with 
the  Uniackes,  a  very  ancient  family  in  this  neighbourhood,  ori- 
ginally called  Fitz-Gerald ;  but  one  of  them  undertaking  an 
enterprise  that  no  one  else  would  dare,  he  was  afterwards  called 
the  Unus,  or  only  one;  and  so  the  name  Uniacke,  as  I  have 
been  informed.  Uniacke  is  the  Irish  formation  of  Unus,  as  I 
have  seen  it  spelled  Uniagh. 

The  inscription  on  this  tomb  is, 

"  D.  O.  M. 

Domino     Petro     Miagh, 

Civi  Consuli  Praetori  Yocholensi,  justiciee  cullori,  pietatis 
amatori,  publicae  ntilitatis  zelatori,  marito  suo  nnice  dilecto  uxor

Sic  tibi  divisit  utraque  Petra  Petrum. 
Yixit  an.  xliii.  vita  functus  viii.  cal.  August,  mdcxxxiii.'^ 

On  the  top  is  written, 

"  Underneath  is  the  burying  place  of  the  family  of  Mount 
Uniack.   1761." 

On  an  escucheon  of  white  marble,  a  chevron  between  three 
trefoils.     Crest,  an  eagle  displayed,  with  two  heads. 

On  a  tablet  of  white  marble  there  is  this  inscription  : 

"  Sacred  to  the  memory 

of  Helena  Uniacke,  wife  of 

Richard   Uniacke, 

who  departed  this  life  the  15th  day  of  September  1779,- 

in  the  35th  vear  of  her  age. 

Her  husband  has  lost  a  faithful  affectionate  wife, 

»  So  the  original,  but  ou,  suis  .'—Edit, 


her  chiklren  an  attentive  tender  mother, 
and  by  her  friends   she  is    sincerely  lamented." 
On  another  similar  tablet : 

"  Sacred 

to  the  memory  of 

John  Uniacke,  of  Cottage,  Esq.  who 

departed  this  life  9th  September  1793, 

aged  77. 

He  was  a  friend  to  the  poor  and  the  oppressed." 

In  a  small  chamber,  inside  the  vestry-room,  near  the  north 
wall,  is  a  large  altar-tomb  with  this  inscription  round  the  margin  : 

"  Here  lieth  the  body  of  Thomas  Houldshipp,  sometimes 
Mayor  of  Youghal,  who  dyed  23rd  of  March  1642." 

On  the  centre  of  the  same  stone  : 

"  Here  lies  the  body  of  Thomas  Shepard,  who  died  October 
14th  1713." 

On  an  escucheon  of  red  marble,  three  lions  passant.  Crest, 
a  demi-lion  rampant.     Mayor  of  Youghal  in  1621. 

In  the  chancel  or  choir  at  the  right  side  of  the  altar,  is  a  very 
ancient  tomb  in  a  niche  with  a  pointed  arch,  all  sides  of  which 
are  richly  ornamented  with  elaborately  carved  stone.  It  is  very 
probable  that  this  recess  contained  an  effigy,  but  at  present  no- 
thino-  indicates  the  person  thus  honoured,  except  a  very  brief 
inscription : 

"  Hie  jacet  Thomas  Fleming." 

The  Hayman,  Giles,  and  Parker  families  have  their  places  of 
interment  within  this  choir. 

On  a  stone  over  the  last  is  this  inscription :  "  Here  lies  the 
body  of  Lieut.-Colonel  Richard  Parker,  who  died  Nov.  25th 
1786,  aged  62." 

Immediately  under  the  beautiful  east  window,  on  the  outside, 
is  an  erect  tombstone  fastened  to  the  wall,  with  this  inscription  : 

"  Here  lyeth  the  body  of  Elizabeth,  youngest  daughter  of 
Colonel  Adrian  Scrope,  ofWarmsley,  in  the  county  of  Ox- 
ford, widow  of  Jonathan  Blagrave,  D.D.  of  Longworth,  in  the 
county  of  Berks.     Born  in  the  year  1655,  aged  83  years." 

Colonel  Adrian  Scrope  was  one  of  the  Regicides,  and  exe- 
cuted, together  with  Colonel  Thomas  Scot,  17th  of  Oct.  1660. 

Colonel  Thomas  Scot  desired  that  it  might  be  written  on  his 
tomb-Stone,  ''  Here  lies  Thomas  Scot,  who  adjudged  to  death 


the  late  King."  His  daughter  Mary  was  married  to  Quintin 
Osborne,  Esq.  M.D. ;  their  son  was  Quintin  Osborne,  Esq.  whose 
daughter  Ehzabeth  married  Charles  Seward,  Esq.  One  of  the 
daughters  of  this  union,  Martha  Seward,  married  Thomas  Oliver, 
Esq.,  and  their  only  daughter  and  heir  married  the  Rev.  Pierce 
William  Drew. 

On  an  old  stone  in  the  churchyard  the  following  words  are 
barely  legible :  "  Here  lie  the  bodies  of  my  2  grandmothers, 
maiden  names.  Fox  and  Chubb." 

The  churciiyard  is  very  extensive,  occupying  a  considerable 
portion  of  the  hill  immediately  over  the  town.  It  is  well  planted, 
judiciously  intersected  by  walks,  and  nearly  surrounded  by  the 
ancient  walls  of  the  town :  nothing  of  the  kind  can  be  more 
picturesque  and  beautiful. 

The  next  object  worthy  of  attention  in  Youghal,  is  the  house 
commonly  denominated  the  College,  at  present  in  possession  of 
the  Duke  of  Devonshire. 

This  establishment  was  founded  the  2Tth  of  December  1464 
by  Thomas  Earl  of  Desmond.  The  community  at  first  consisted 
of  a  warden,  eight  fellows,  and  eight  singing  men,  who  lived  in  a 
collegiate  manner,  having  a  common  table,  &,c.  The  whole 
donation  was  originally  worth  600/.  per  ann.  and  the  house  was 
afterwards  endowed  with  a  number  of  parsonages  and  vicarao-es. 
The  last  person  who  held  the  wardenship  on  the  ancient  terms 
was  Dr.  Meredith  Hanmer.  It  then  became  vested  or  merged 
in  the  bishopric  of  Cork  and  Cloyne,  in  the  person  of  Dr. 
Richard  Boyle.  The  house  and  grounds  attached,  which  are  very 
beautiful,  and  peculiarly  interesting  from  their  past  associations 
and  history,  became  the  property  of  Sir  Walter  Raleio-h,  then 
of  Mr.  Jones,  next  of  Sir  George  Carew,  Lord  President  of  Mun- 
ster,  who  sold  it  to  Sir  Richard  Boyle,  afterwards  Earl  of  Cork,  who 
alludes  to  this  house  in  one  of  his  papers,  in  the  followino-  terms, 
viz.  "  My  second  son  Richard  was  born  at  the  College  of  Youg- 
hal, the  20th  of  October  1612.  The  Earl  of  Thomond,  Sir 
Richard  Aldworth,  f  and  Mr.  Thomas  Ball,  of  London,  were  his 

f  Sir  Richard  Aldworth  was  lineal  ancestor  of  the  Rev.  John  Aldworth  the  pre- 
sent  Rector  of  the  parish  of  Youghal,  second  son  of  the  late  Robert  Rogers  Aid- 
worth,  Esq.  of  Newmarket  House,  co.  Cork. 


godfathers,  and  Lady  Anne  Parsons  godmother.  God  grant  he 
may  serve  and  I'ear  him  religiously,  and  be  a  faithful  subject  and 
servant  to  the  King's  Majesty  and  his  heirs,  and  live  many  years 
full  of  good  works  and  of  virtuous  children,  and  be  a  worthy 
pillar  and  patriot  in  this  kingdom.  He  being  Viscount  Dun- 
garvan,  was  knighted  in  my  house  at  Youghal,  13th  August  1624, 
by  the  Lord  Faulkland,  Deputy  General  of  Ireland.  And  my 
said  son  departed  Dublin,  to  begin  his  travels  into  foreign  king- 
doms, the  4th  June  1632,  I  allowing  him  one  thousand  pounds 
a  year  in  his  travels."  The  College,  which  is  a  fine  house,  flanked 
by  two  handsome  towers,  is  the  property  of  his  Grace  the  Duke 
of  Devonshire,  having,  with  Lismore  Castle  and  a  large  estate 
in  Ireland,  passed  with  the  heiress  of  the  Boyles  into  the  Caven- 
dish family. 

Another  object  worthy  of  antiquarian  notice  in  Youghal,  is 
the  warden's  house,  now  called  Myrtle  Grove,  from  the  number, 
size,  and  luxuriance  of  the  myrtle-trees,  which  have  flourished 
within  its  precincts  for  ages  back,  but  which,  alas !  have  been 
greatly  injured  by  the  late  occupier.  This  house  resembles 
closely  some  of  the  ancient  manor  or  parsonage  houses  in  Eng- 
land ;  but  is  greatly  disfigured  by  modern  alterations.  The 
walls  are  four  feet  in  width,  and  the  chimnies  very  lofty ;  the 
oreater  part  of  the  house  is  paneled  with  black  oak ;  but  in  the 
drawing-room  particularly  the  oak  is  better  preserved,  and  the 
carving  of  the  mantelpiece  is  extremely  handsome.  Sir  Walter 
Raleio-li  owned  this  house  also,  and  is  said  to  have  resided  in  it 
while  mayor  of  Youghal  in  the  year  1588.  In  the  gardens  are 
four  yew-trees,  said  to  have  been  planted  by  Sir  Walter ;  they 
are  very  lofty,  and  form  a  square  with  a  complete  canopy  at  the 
top.  Here  also  potatoes,  originally  brought  from  Virginia,  were 
first  planted  in  Ireland.  It  is  said  that  the  person  who  had  first 
carelessly  put  them  into  the  ground,  tried  the  apples  which  he 
saw  on  the  stock  in  the  first  instance,  and  finding  their  taste  dis- 
agreeable, he  disregarded  them  for  an  entire  year,  after  which 
they  were  discovered  greatly  increased.  It  is  moi*e  probable  that 
Sir  Walter  Raleigh,  who  really  had  imported  them  from  Vir- 
o-inia,  planted  them  in  these  gardens,  and  shewed  the  right  use 
of  them.  After  which  they  circulated  over  Ireland,  and  we  can- 
not say  to  the  advantage  of  that  unfortunate  country. 

THE    FAMILY    OF    DREW,  209 

In  the  days  of  witchcraft,  Youghal  had  its  witch  in  the 
person  of  Florence  Newton.  (Sec  her  trial  in  Glanvil,  p.  313.) 
Also  the  celebrated  Valentine  Greatrakes  performed  many  of 
his  cures  liere.  (See  Granger.)  Valentine  was  ancestor  of 
the  families  of  Drew  and  Power  (as  noticed  in  the  next  page.) 

P.  W.  D. 



TiiK  Stivji  of  tills  ancient  family,  as  Prince  in  liis  AVortliics  of  Devon 
expresses  himself,  was  Drogo  or  Dru,  who,  as  Lysons  in  his  Britannia 
informs  ns,  was  a  noble  Norman,  son  of  Walter  de  Ponz,   third  son  of 
Richard   Duke   of    Normandy,    grandfather  of    tlie   Conqueror,     (see 
Barony  of  Clifford  in   Debrett's    Peerage,)    and    brother   of    Richard 
ancestor  of  the    Chftbrds,    and   had    seventy-three    manors   in  Devon 
at  tlie  time  of  the  Domesday  Survey.     See  the  Domesday  Book.     His 
grandson   Drogo  de  Tign  was  lord  of  Tignton  Drew  in  Devon   in  the 
reign  of  Henry  II.  and,  as  Sir  William  Pole  states,  "both  gave  name  and 
took  name  from  that  manor."     "  By  time's  continuance,"  Risdon  says, 
"  this  name  was  mollified  into  Drew."  and  it  has  flourished  with  oreat 
reputation   in  the  county  of  Devon  from  the  Norman  Conquest  to  tlje 
present  time.     Camden  derives   it  thus  :  "  Dru,  in  Latine  Druoo  or 
Drogo,  subtile,  as  callidus  in  Latine,  if  it  come  from  the  Saxon  or  Ger- 
man ;  but  if  it  come  from  the  French,  lively  and  lusty  (Nicotius)."  See 
Camden's  Remains.     Prince  gives  a  curious  deed  dated  4th  year  of  Ed- 
ward IV.  by  which  it  was  provided  that  the  rents  of  certain  messuages 
uearModbury  be  applied  towards  maintaining  an  honest  chaplain  to  pray 
for  the  souls  of  John  Drew,  Esq.  and  Joan  his  wife,  Henry  Drew,  Esq. and 
his  three  wives.  Sir  Richard  Champernon,  Sir  Thomas  Carew,  and  otliers.

VOL.  II,  P 


Hayne,  and  Sharpham,  In  Devon,  the  first  who  settled  in  Ireland,  came 
thither  a  young  man,  a  Captain  in  Queen  Elizabeth's  army,  and  towards 
the  close  of  her  reign.  He  purchased  the  estate  of  Meanus,  in  the 
county  of  Kerry,  in  the  year  1 633,  having  previously  resided  at  Kil- 
winny  in  the  county  of  \^'aterford.  "  Together  with  all  others  of  Eng- 
lish blood,"  as  the  ancient  Memorial  says,  "  he  was  expelled  from 
Kerry  by  the  Irish  rebels  in  the  bloody  year  lG-11,  and  his  title  deeds 
seized  by  a  notorious  Irish  insurgent,  one  Cahir  Teige  O'Connor." 
Soon  after  this  he  died.  His  second  wife  was  Susanna  Knowle  of 
Youghal  in  the  county  of  Cork,  afterward  married  to  Colonel  John 
Johnson  ;  her  sister  Margaret  was  married  to  Lieutenant  Thomas  Maun- 
sell,  who  defended  the  Castle  of  Mocollup,  in  the  county  of  Waterford, 
in  the  most  gallant  manner  against  Cromwell's  forces  in  1650,  and  who 
was  afterwards  interred  within  the  old  church  immediately  near,  where 
his  tomb  remained  until  the  church  was  taken  down  about  the  beginning 
of  the  present  century.  The  inscription,  however,  had  been  previously 
committed  to  a  paper,  still  preserved,  by  Mrs.  Drew  of  Mocollup  castle. 
The  following  is  an  accurate  copy  : 

"  Here  lyeth  the  body  of  Livetenant  Thom's  Maunsell,  who  departed 
this  life  the  13th  day  of  March,  an.  Dom.  1686.  Here  lyeth  also  the 
body  of  Mrs.  Marg'tt  Maunsell  his  wife,  who  departed  this  life  the  2nd 
day  of  February,  anno  Dom.  1679." 

This  Francis's  eldest  son,  John,  married  Margaret  eldest  daughter  of 
the  Very  Rev,  Robert  Naylor,  Dean  of  Limerick.  An  old  original  paper 
still  extant,  states  that  John  and  Robert  Naylor,  the  uncles  of  Richard 
Boyle,  1st  Earl  of  Cork,  followed  him  over  to  Ireland.  They  were 
the  brothers  of  Joan  the  Earl's  mother.  The  Earl  of  Cork  gave  his 
cousin  Margaret  Naylor  in  marriage  to  John  Drew,  Esq.  with  an  addi- 
tional fortune,  and  was  a  party  to  the  settlement,  as  appears  from  the 
deed  still  extant. 

Francis's  second  son,  Barry,  the  first  of  the  Drewscourt  family 
in  the  county  of  Limerick,  married  first,  a  daughter  of  Sir  Francis 
Foulkes,  Knt.  of  Camphire,  county  of  Waterford ;  and  secondly,  Ruth 
Nettles,  of  Tourine,  daughter  of  William  Nettles,  Esq.  by  Mary, 
sister  of  the  celebrated  Valentine  Greatrakes,  Esq.  of  Affane  Castle,  in 
the  same  county.  Valentine  Greatrakes  was  one  of  the  most  remark- 
able men  of  his  age.  He  possessed  the  extraordinary  power  of  curing 
diseases  by  simply  stroking  the  parts  affected,  with  his  hand,  Robert 
Boyle,  the  great  Christian  philosopher,  frequently  bore  witness  to  the 
fact.  His  own  Ufe,  written  by  himself,  and  printed  in  1G6G,  is  still 
extant,  and  seems  to  have  been  written  with  truth  and  candour.  His 
memory  is  still  (juite  fresh  in  the  county  of  Waterford.    (See  an  account 

FAMILY    OF    DREW.  211 

of  him  in  Granger.)  Tlie  Nettles  family  got  possession  of  Tourine  Castle 
on  the  forfeiture  of  the  Lord  Roche  after  1641. 

The  just  mentioned  Barry  Drew,  Esq.  was  receiver  to  the  estates  of 
the  second  Earl  of  Cork,  and,  together  with  Sir  Francis  Foulkes,  Knt. 
and  Richard  Musgrave,  Esq.  was  Commissioner  for  the  restoration  of 
these  estates  after  the  Revolution.  His  house  of  Ballyduff,  in  county 
of  Waterford,  still  stands,  a  complete  and  beautiful  specimen  of  the 
strong  castellated  houses  generally  erected  in  Ireland  towards  the  close 
of  Elizabeth's  reign,  and  all  through  that  of  James  and  Charles  follow- 
ing. It  has  stone  casemented  windows,  flanking  towers  loopholed  from 
top  to  bottom,  a  court-yard  elaborately  paved,  and  surrounded  with  a 
parapet  wall  loopholed  along  its  whole  range. 

Francis  Drew,  Esq.  the  second  of  that  Christian  name  in  the  Irish 
line,  and  the  son  of  John  and  Margaret,  suftered  great  losses  during  the 
war  previous  to  the  Revolution.  His  place  at  Kilwinny,  co.  Waterford, 
was  completely  laid  waste  by  King  James's  army,  and  the  house,  with  a 
great  deal  of  property,  utterly  burnt  and  destroyed.  He  served  as  volun- 
teer in  King  William's  army  at  the  battle  of  Aughrim,  and  also  at  the 
sieges  of  Athlone,  Galway,  and  Limerick.  He  was  a  most  devoted 
Protestant,  as  several  letters  of  his  still  extant  prove :  and  his  remains 
were  interred  under  his  own  seat  in  the  church  of  Castle  Island,  co. 
Kerry.  His  wife  was  Rebecca  Pomeroy,  a  descendant  of  Joel  de  la 
Pomerai,  lord  of  Biry  or  Berry  in  Devon,  who  married  a  daughter  of 
King  Henry  the  First,  and  sister  of  Reginald  Earl  of  Cornwall.  The 
Pomeroys  married  into  the  knightly  families  of  De  Mules,  De  Camville, 
De  Vere,  De  Vernon,  De  Vallctort,  &c.  &c.  (See  Sir  Wm.  Pole.) 
Rebecca  Drew  outlived  her  husband  many  years,  and  with  wonderful 
resolution  protected  herself  at  Mocollup  Castle  though  surrounded  by 
Irish  enemies.  She  could  use  guns  and  pistols  as  dexterously  as  any 
person,  and  always  kept  them  loaded  in  her  bedroom.  Her  powder- 
horn  was  extant  a  few  years  ago.  She  told  James  the  Second's  Lord 
Chancellor  in  his  own  court,  that  "  if  she  had  him  at  Mocollup  Castle  she 
would  have  him  cased  like  a  rabbit." 

Francis  and  Rebecca  had  but  one  child,  Margaret,  who  married  her 
cousin  John  Drew,  Esq.  second  son  of  the  before-mentioned  Barry  Drew, 
of  Ballyduff,  co.  Waterford,  and  of  Drewscourt,  co.  Limerick,  This 
John  Drew,  Esq.  was  a  gentleman  of  peculiar  intelligence  and  activity 
of  character  and  disposition^  which  enabled  him  to  add  considerably  to 
his  estates  and  property.  "  Having  disarmed  his  opponent  of  his  sword 
in  a  duel,  he  gave  him  his  life." 

He  had  several  sons,  all  of  whom  died  unmarried  except  the  eldest^ 
Francis  Drew,  Esq.  M.D.

212  GENEALOGY    OF    THE 

This  gentleman  studied  physic  at  Leyden  in  1743,  He  was  very 
learned  and  talented,  and  ecjually  distinguished  for  his  amiability  and 
goodness.  He  lived  in  great  hospitality  at  Mocollup  Castle  for  a  great 
number  of  years,  and  died  lamented  and  respected  by  all  who  knew  him. 
He  had  married  Arabella,  eldest  daughter  and  coheir  of  Colonel  William 
Godfreys  of  Bushfield  (now  Kilcolemau  Abbey),co.Kerry,  by  Elizabeth, 
eldest  daughter  and  coheir  of  the  Ilev.  Richard  Downing,  of  Knock- 
graffon,  co.  Tipperary. 

This  Lady's  pedigree  (in  poetry)  is  still  extant,  a  great  curiosity, 
and  derives  her  from  Fiachra,  King  of  Munster,  M'Carthymore,  the 
great  houses  of  Thomond  and  Ormond,  Sir  Valentine  Brown,  of  Ross, 
CO,  Kerry,  ancestor  of  the  Earls  of  Kenmare,  and  other  distinguished 
persons.  Through  Pierce,  8th  Earl  of  Ormond,  she  has  a  direct  descent 
from  King  Edward  the  First, 

John  Drew,  Esq,  eldest  son  of  the  last  mentioned  Francis,  was  a  gen- 
tleman of  wit  and  talent,  and  peculiar  amiability.  He  married  Alicia, 
eldest  daughter  of  Pierce  Power,  Esq,  of  Afiane,  co,  AVaterford,  a  de- 
scendant of  the  very  ancient  baronial  house  of  Power  or  De  la  Poer, 
now  represented  by  the  Marquess  of  VVaterford.  Alicia's  sister,  Catha- 
rine, married  Sir  Christopher  Musgrave,  Bart. 

A  great  collection  of  most  rare  and  curious  family  papers  and  docu- 
ments are  in  the  possession  of  the  Rev.  Pierce  William  Drew,  of  the 
Strand  House,  Youghal  ;  where  also  may  be  seen  many  portraits  of 
members  of  the  Drev\',  Naylor,  Boyle,  Godfrey,  and  Power,  families, 
one  of  Valentine  Greatrakes,  and  of  several  other  distinguished  persons. 
Also  several  fine  suits  of  armour  in  the  best  preservation,  and  richly 
ornamented  weapons  of  almost  every  period  in  our  history. 

This  family  in  general,  by  the  heiress  of  Prideaux  and  through  the 
Mortimers  Earls  of  March,  derive  descent  from  Henry  H.  Llevvelyn 
Prince  of  Wales,  the  King  of  Leinster,  Earl  Strongbow,  the  Bigods,  De 
Lacles,  Montacutes,  &c.  &c. 

®  Colonel  Godfrey  having  left  no  male  issue,  was  succeeded  at  Bushfield  l)y  his 
brother  John,  who  was  father  of  Sir  William  Godfrey,  1st  Bart,  of  that  family.

To  the  Editor  of  the  Topographer. 

By  the  kindness  of  Lord  Strangford,  I  am  enabled  to  fur- 
nish you  with  a  few  additional  particulars  respecting  the  family 
of  Harlakenden.  *  From  the  deeds  of  the  family,  placed  by 
his  lordship  at  my  disposal,  an  abstract  of  all  which  I  here  send, 
we  are  made  acquainted  with  the  fact  that  George  Harlakenden, 
last  named  of  Woodchurch,  married  a  second  wife,  whilst  they 
supply  the  name,  residence,  designation,  and  arms  of  his  first 
lady's  father.  They  also  give  the  army  rank  borne  by  himself 
and  his  own  father. 

And  well  had  it  been  could  they  tell  of  nothing  more  than 
these  several  particulars,  for,  unhappilyj  they  furnish  us  with  the

means  of  tracing  step  by  step  the  downfall  of  a  very  ancient 
family.  In  1700  the  interest  of  Harlakenden  seems  wholly  to 
liavc  ceased  in  Woodchurcli^  and  we  may  reasonably  conclude 
that  the  last  male  possessor  of  the  name  ended  his  days  in 
straightened  circumstances. 

The  two  last  descents  of  the  pedigree  may  therefore  be  en- 
larged, as  under :

^  This  entry  proves  that  the  eldest  son  of  Thomas  Harlakenden  of  Earl's  Colne 
and  Dorothy  Cheney  was  not  buried  at  Earl's  Colne  as  stated,  and  that  he  survived 
Ills  childhood. 

''  Thomas  Harlakenden,  who  married  Elizabeth  Watno  ?  His  coat  was  evidently 
that  which  Philipot  saw  in  a  window  of  Gray's  Inn  Hall.  George  and  Martin  above 
were  most  probably  his  sons. 



(Taken  27tli  August  1844.) 

The  parish  of  Narburgh,  which  is  situated  in  the  county  of 
Norfolk,  diocese  of  Norwich,  and  arclideaconry  of  Norfolk,  lies 
on  the  high  road  leading  from  Lynn  to  Norwich ;  about  nine 
miles  from  the  former  place  and  thirty-two  from  the  latter. 

It  derives  its  name  from  the  river  Nar,  on  whose  banks  it 
stands.  And  Sir  Henry  Spelman,  whose  family  were  lords  of 
the  town,  relates  in  his  Icenia,  that  John  Brame,  a  monk  of 
Thetford,  who  lived  in  the  reign  of  Henry  IV.,  in  a  MS.  history, 
maintains  Narburgh  to  have  been  a  city  in  the  time  of  Uter 
Pendragon,  King  of  Britain,  about  the  year  500,  governed  by 
Earl  Okenard ;  and  that  it  was  besieged  seven  months  by  Waldy, 
a  neighbouring  king,  who,  on  taking  it,  rased  it  to  the  ground. 

It  was  undoubtedly  a  place  of  some  eminence  in  Saxon  times, 
as  is  shown  by  its  name,  and  by  the  remains  of  certain  military 
works  which  are  foimd  in  and  near  the  parish.  But,  whatever 
was  the  importance  it  once  possessed,  at  the  time  of  the  great 
Survey  of  the  kingdom  by  William  I.  it  was  returned  as  having 
no  more  than  thirty-three  villeins,  ten  borders,  and  six  carucates 
of  land.  It  was  then  the  lordship  of  Roger  Bigot,  Earl  of  Nor- 
folk, and  at  a  very  early  period  came  into  the  hands  of  the 
De  Narburghs,  some  of  whom  were  probably  the  builders  of 
the  earliest  parts  of  the  parish  church,  where  there  is  still  re- 
maining a  very  ancient  monument  of  one  of  the  family. 

After  the  De  Narburghs,  the  Shouldhams,  and  then  the  Spel- 
mans,  succeeded  as  lords,  and  continued  so  for  many  genera- 
tions. This  last  family  is  of  great  antiquity,  and  many  of  its 
members  have  been  persons  of  high  celebrity,  but  die  chief 
glory  of  the  flxmily  is  "  that  great  antiquary,  and  most  learned 
knioht.  Sir  Henry  Spelman,  an  honour  to  the  college  whore  he 
was  educated,  as  also  to  die  town  and  county  he  was  born  in." 

Sir  Henry  Spelman,  however,  was  not  born  at  Narburgh,  but 
at  Congham,  a  village  a  few  miles  distant. 

The  principal  lordship  of  the  town  is  now  in  the  family  of 


Tyssen  ;  the  patronage  of  the  vicarage  in  Mr.  Marriott,  and  the 
population  is  something  above  300. 

The  Church,  which  is  dedicated  to  All  the  Saints,  is  an  inter- 
esting specimen  of  village  ecclesiastical  architecture,  consistino- 
of  a  nave,  with  north  and  south  aisles,  and  a  chancel.  The 
nave  is  much  the  oldest  part  of  the  fabric,  being  early -English. 
And  Blomefield  tells  us  that  in  his  time  (1736)  it  was  "  came- 
rated  and  impaneled  with  wainscot,  the  mitres  of  these  panels 
ornamented  with  shields; "  and  he  gives  a  list  of  forty-five  which 
were  then  to  be  distinguished,  though  the  colours  of  many  of 
them  were  very  obscure.  They  related  to  marriages  in  the  Nar- 
burgh,  Shouldham,  and  Spelman  families.  These  have  now  all 
disappeared,  the  interior  of  the  roof  having  been  ceiled  and  plas- 
tered. The  arms  which  may  still  be  seen  in  the  church  are  as 
follows : — 

1.  Narburgh,  Gules,  a  chief  ermine. 

2.  Frowick,  Azure,  a  chevron  between  three  leopard's  faces  or. 

3.  Sturgeon,  Azure,  three  sturgeons  naiant  in  pale  or,  over 
all  fretty  of  eight  pieces  gules. 

4.  Spelman,  Sable,  platee  between  two  flaunches  argent. 

5.  Townshend,  Azure,  a  chevron  ermine  between   three  es- 
callops argent. 

6.  Eyer,  Argent,  on  a  chevron  sable  three  quatrefoils  or. 

T.  Bleverhasset,  Gules,  a  chevron  ermine  between  three  dol- 
phins embowed  argent. 

8.  Lowdham,  Argent,  three  escucheons  sable. 

9.  Kelweden,  Gules,  a  pall  reversed  ermine. 

10.  Orton,  Argent,  a  lion  rampant  guardant  vert,  crowned  or. 

11.  Skelton,  Azure,  on  a  fess,  between  three  fleurs-de-lis  or, 
a  crescent  sable. 

12.  Heigham,    Sable,  a  fess  checquey  or  and  azure,   three 
horse's  heads  erased  argent. 

13.  Francis,  Gules,  a  chevron  engrailed  ermine  between  three 
doves  rising  or. 

14.  Saunders,  Sable,  a  chevron  ermine  between  three  bull's 
heads  caboshed  argent. 

15.  Willoughby,  Or,  on  two  bars  gules  three  water-bougets 

16.  Hawe,  Sable,  a  fess  humette  ermine  between  three  grif- 
fin's heads  erased  argent.

17.  Adrian,  Argent,  two  bars  wavy  gules,  a  chief  chccquey  or 
and  azure. 

18.  Pouncy,  Gules,  two  wings  conjoined  in  a  bordure  ar- 

19.  Mansell,  Azure,  seme  of  cross-crosslets  and  three  cres- 
cents argent. 

20.  Cornwall,  Argent,  on  a  cross-fleury  sable  five  bezants. 

21.  Patrick,  Gules,  two  pales  vairy  argent  and  azure,  on  a 
chief  or  a  lion  passant  sable. 

22.  Heveningham,  Quarterly  or  and  gules,  on  a  bordure  en- 
grailed sable  nine  escallops  argent. 

23.  Le  Gros,  Quarterly  argent  and  aziu-e,  on  a  bend  sable 
three  martlets  or. 

24.  Turner,  Sable,  a  chevron  ermine  between  three  fer-du- 
molins  or,  on  a  chief  argent  a  lion  passant  gules. 

25.  Branthwayt,  Or,  two  bendlets  engrailed  sable. 

26.  Walpole,  Or,  on  a  fess  between  two  chevron  els  sable  three 
cross-crosslets  of  the  field. 

27.  Gary,  Argent,  on  a  bend  sable  three  roses  of  the  field. 

28.  Tyssen,  Or,  on  a  chevron  vert  two  lions  rampant  of  the 
first,  between  three  roses  proper. 

Weever  must  have  been  a  very  unobservant  antiquary  when 
he  could  find  no  more  than  three  inscriptions  in  this  church 
worthy  to  be  copied  into  his  book  of  "  Ancient  Funerall  Monu- 
ments : "  nor  has  he  copied  even  those  three  correctly. 

Blomefield's  account  is  much  more  full  and  correct ;  but,  from 
a  comparison  with  these  notes,  it  will  be  seen  that  several  in- 
teresting memorials,  particularly  in  stained  glass,  have  disap- 
peared since  his  time.  The  ugly  square  pews  with  which  the 
nave  and  aisles  are  now  disfigured,  being  floored  with  deal 
boards,  may  perhaps  cover  some  of  the  missing  inscriptions,  but 
most  of  the  stained  glass  is  entirely  destroyed ;  and  the  east 
window  is  blocked  up,  and  in  its  place  is  a  heavy  wooden  frame, 
on  which  are  painted  the  Commandments,  8{c. 

All  that  now  remains  of  stained  glass  is  inserted  in  the  two 
south  windows  of  the  chancel,  and  consists  of  five  shields,  con- 
taining the  quarterings  of  the  Spelmans,  and  two  subjects,  one 
in  each  of  the  small  upper  compartments.  They  appear  to  have 
been  taken  from  other  windows  when  the  lights  were  re-glazed. 

The  fontj  which  Blomefield  says  was  large  and  antique,  is  now

replaced  by  a  modern  black  marble  basin,  mounted  on  a  pedestal 
of  freestone.

On  a  brass  plate,  1593:  "  Here  lieth  the  body  of  Richarde 
AwsTEN,  gentleman,  who  was  a  good  benefactor  for  the  poor  in 
the  town  of  Narburgh."  This  is  now  loose,  and  lies  on  one  of 
the  altar-tombs. 

At  the  east  end  of  the  north  aisle  is  a  marble  altar-tomb  raised 
against  the  wall,  with  a  wall-piece,  on  which  is  the  portraiture 
in  brass  of  a  man  and  his  wife,  each  kneeling  before  a  prie-dieu. 
On  the  man's  desk,  which  is  covered  with  a  fringed  cloth,  lie  his 
gauntlets  beside  his  prayer  book ;  his  dress  is  that  of  a  cavalier 
in  armour :  on  the  lady's  desk,  her  mittens.  The  man  has  a 
label,  on  which  is,  "  With  the  Lord  there  is  mercy;"  and  the 
woman  another,  on  which,  "  And  with  him  is  plenteous  redemp- 
tion."    Beneath  is  this  inscription  : 

'^  Here  do  lye  John  Eyer,  Esquire,  late  Receyvor  Generale

Suffolk,  and  Cantabridge  and  Huntynton,  and  one  of  the 
Maisters  of  her  hygh  Court  of  Chancerye,  and  Margaret  his

Sir  Henry  Spelman,  in  his  History  of  Sacrilege,  informs  us 
(p.  247)  that  this  John  Eyre  was  a  great  purchaser  of  religious 
houses  on  their  dissolution  by  Henry  VKI.  and  that  he  bought  of 
that  King  the  Friars  Carmelites,  the  Grey  Friars,  the  Friars 
Preachers  or  Black  Friars,  and  the  Augustine  Friars  at  Lynn. 
He  was  also  possessed  of  Bury  Abbey,  and  died  without  issue.

"  Here  lyeth  the  body  of  Mundeford  Spelman,  Esq.  son 
of  John  Spelman  and  Ann  his  wife,  born  Aug.  1,  1640.  He  was 
a  man  of  a  most  exemplary  piety  in  prayers  to,  and  in  praising, 
the  Great  God  of  heaven  and  earth  ;  and  in  relieving  the  neces- 
sities of  the  poor  widow  and  fatherless  was  his  constant  employ 
and  delight  of  his  life.  These  are  the  actions  which  will  turn 
to  account  on  that  great  day,  when  endless  wealth,  pompous 
titles,  and  the  noise  of  victories,  the  pride  of  learning,  will  at 
best  be  but  useless  things.  By  Julian  his  wife,  daughter  of 
William  Branthwayte,  of  Hethell,  Esq.  he  left  issue  three  sons 
and  one  daughter ;  he  dyed  the  30th  January,  in  the  year  of  our

These  two  last  mentioned  niemoiials  were  originally  placed  in 
the  pavement  of  the  chancel,  but  are  now  neatly  inserted  in  free- 
stone, and  fixed  to  the  north  wall. 

At  the  south-east  corner  of  the  chancel  is  a  square  pillar 
about  seven  feet  in  height,  within  which,  in  an  upright  position, 
are  interred  the  remains  of  Clement  Spelman,  Esq.  and  upon 
•which  is  his  statue  in  alabaster,  in  his  robes  as  counsellor  and 
Recorder,  the  size  of  life.     On  the  pillar  this  inscription  : 

"  In  this  place  doth  rest  the  body  of  Clement  Spelman,

peace  for  the  counties  of  Nottingham  and  Norfolk  ;  he  deceased 
Jan.  30,  1679,  aged  72." 

The  next  monument  is  very  curious,  and  is  thus  described  by 
Blomefield : 

"  At  the  east  end  of  the  north  part  of  the  chancel,  is  a  small 
arch  in  the  wall  about  seven  feet  from  the  ground,  and  in  it 
lies  a  demi-stajtue  of  a  lady  carved  out  of  stone,  and  couped  at 
the  middle,  in  miniature,  being  but  about  a  foot  long;  her  head- 
dress seems  very  antique,  her  hands  are  conjoined  on  her  breast, 
holding  a  heart,  and  she  rests  on  her  back ;  within  the  arch, 
against  the  wall,  is  this  inscription  in  letters  of  gold: 


On  each  side  of  this  the  arms  of  Narburgh. 

''  This  is  a  piece  of  great  antiquity,  and  this  lady  is  said  to 
have  died  in  1293,  and  probably  the  date  was  formerly  inscribed 
here,  for  in  an  old  MS.  of  monuments,  collected  about  the  reign 
of  Queen  Elizabeth,  I  find  it  mentioned  in  this  manner,  '  D^na 
Agatha  Narborough,  obiit  1293.'  " 

The  inscription  and  arms  are  now  entirely  obliterated. 

Near  the  last,  an  altar-tomb  of  marble,  with  a  marble  wall- 
piece,  in  which  is  inserted  a  brass,  engraven  with  the  efBgies  of 
a  man  and  woman  on  their  knees  before  a  prie-dieu ;  over  the 
man  is  a  label,  on  which  is  "  Jesu,  fill  Dei,  miserere  mei;  "  over 
the  woman,  ''  Salvator  mundi,  memento  mei."  On  the  woman's 
robes  are  the  arms  of  Frowick  and  Sturgeon  quarterly,  and  above 
the  figures  the  representation  of  the  Resurrection.  Over  the 
man  is  a  shield  quarterly,  Spelman  and  Narburgh,  and  over  the 
woman,  quarterly,  Frowick  and  Sturgeon.  On  a  brass  below,

Jesu  have  mercy.     Amen." 

The  next  is  a  very  large  monument  of  marble,  with  a  high 
wall-piece.  On  the  tomb  is  the  statue  of  a  woman  in  a  recum- 
bent posture,  with  a  singular  head-dress  something  resembling 
a  shell.  Behind  her,  and  a  little  elevated,  lies  a  man  in  armour ; 
both  these  figures  are  painted  alabaster.  On  the  upper  part  of 
the  wall-piece  are  two  arches ;  that  to  the  right  is  occupied  by  a 
female  child  kneeling,  and  by  her  the  arms  of  Spelman  quarter- 
ing Narburgh,  Frowick,  and  Sturgeon.  In  the  left  hand  arch  is 
a  tent,  in  which  lies  an  infant;  in  this  arch  are  also  the  arms  of

paling, 1  and  4,  Willoughby ;  2,  Gules,  a  lion  passant  guardant

the  cornice,  or  chamfered  edge  of  the  slab,  are  remains  of  an 
inscription,  which  appears  to  have  contained  their  names,  for,  in 
spite  of  repeated  white-washings,  the  following  can  still  be  made 

out:   ^n.    Cfjoma.    gjofjan^.    ^lexantrer.     Cl^oma^. 

This  is  the  monument  of  Michael  de  la  Pole,  second  Earl  of 
Suffolk,  who  married  Katharine,  daughter  of  Hugh  Earl  of  Staf- 
ford, and  died  at  the  siege  of  Harfleur  1415.  (See  Stothard's 
Monumental  Effigies.) 


3.  In  the  north  wall,  an  altar-tomb  of  freestone,  the  front 
of  which  has  blank  shields  in  quatre foils ;  upon  this  is  a  slab 
or  table  of  Purbeck  marble,  and  over  that  a  thin  slab,  of  a 
white,  soft  stone,  on  which  lies  the  figure  of  a  knight  in  plate 
armour,  with  a  pointed  helmet,  to  which  is  attached  a  piece  of 
mail  falling  down  to  the  shoulders.  This  is  called  the  monu- 
ment of  William  de  la  Pole,  Duke  of  Suffolk,  who  was  beheaded 
at  sea  in  1449.  It  certainly,  however,  represents  a  Wingfield  ; 
and  it  is  most  probably  the  monument  of  Sir  John  Wingfield, 
of  Wingfield  Castle,  whose  daughter  and  heir  Katharine  mar- 
ried Michael  de  la  Pole,  first  Earl  of  Suffolk.  Sir  John  was 
living  in  1355,  but  the  exact  date  of  his  death  does  not  appear. 
(See  Stothard.)

6.  In  the  north  aisle,  mural,  of  white  marble,  for  Mr.  Benjamin 
Hatcher,  late  of  Cratfield,  in  this  county,  who  died  12  July,

son  of  Robert  and  Ann  Pretyman,  died  14  Jan.  1784,  aged  22. 
Also  Jane-Hall,  youngest  daughter  of  Robert  and  Ann  Prety-

In  the  floor  of  this  church  are  many  stones  which  had  brasses 
on  them,  some  very  large  and  richly  inlaid,  probably  for  indi- 
viduals of  the  De  la  Pole  family. 

8.  In  the  north  aisle,  a  small  tablet  of  white  marble,  for  John 
Bicker,  Perpetual  Curate  of  this  parish,  who  died  March  18,

room built  in  the  churchyard,  which  had  been  erected  by  his 
exertions.  Sarah,  his  first  wife,  died  29  Jan.  1823,  aged  32, 
buried  at  Bruisyard.  Also  Sarah,  his  second  wife,  died  31 
March  1835,  aged  23;  buried  by  his  side.

Ufford.  D.  A.  Y. 


To  the  Editor  of  the  Topographer  and  Genealogist. 

Presuming  that  the  investigated  or  elaborated  pedigree  of 
any  ge7itle  family  is  acceptable  to  you,  provided  it  be  not  else- 
where in  print,  I  venture  to  communicate  that  of  the  Marche 
flimily  of  the  Isle  of  Ely,  co.  Cambridge,  which  recorded  its  arms 
and  contemporary  generations  at  its  county  Visitations  of  1574-5, 
1619,  and  1684. 


But  before  entering  upon  this  genealogy,  it  may  be  pertinent 
to  explain,  that  I  was  originally  led  to  it  when  tracing  in  1841-3 
the  representation  of  the  Steward  family  of  Ely,  in  which  (with 
Oliver  Cromwell  and  some  other  persons)  the  Marches  enjoyed 
a  coheirship;  and,  according  to  my  general  habit,  I  perfected 
the  Marche  pedigree  {i.  e.  as  nearly  as  I  could  without  any  great 
expense)  having  once  touched  upon  it. 

I  have,  however,  a  rather  important  reason  for  this  preface  to 
the  pedigree,  and  it  is  to  rectify  an  error  which  I  copied  from 
Vincent,  and  published  in  a  periodical  called  "TheArchseologist," 
printed  by  Mr.  John  Russell  Smith,  in  1841-2.  This  article 
I  wrote  for  the  express  purpose  of  correcting  Mark  Noble's 
groundless  and  unwarrantable  presumption,  "  that  of  all  the  six 
sister- coheiresses  of  the  Steward  family,  whereof  Oliver  Crom- 
well's mother  was  the  fifth,  all  died  young  or  unmarried,  except 
Mrs.  Cromwell :  "  whereas  it  is  clearly  proved  that  all  six  mar- 
ried;  and  that  not  less  than  two,  besides  Mrs.  Cromwell,  had 
surviving  issue ;  all  which  I  fully  substantiated.  But,  upon 
Vincent's  authority,  I  there  also  stated,  that  Barbara  Marche, 
the  daughter  of  Thomas  Marche  who  married  Anne  Stev/ard, 
was  she,  so  named,  who  became  the  wife  of  Edmond  Hodilow. 
Now  I  wish  to  state  that  since  then  original  investigation  has 
quite  disproved  Vincent's  identification.  I  find  that  Barbara, 
daughter  of  Thomas  Marche  and  Anne  Steward,  was  not  baptized 
till  Barbara  Marche,  wife  of  Hodilow,  was  married ;  while  the 
will  of  Agnes  Marche,  mother  of  the  said  Thomas,  calls  Bai'bara 
Hodilow  daughter  to  the  testatrix ;  so  that  it  is  quite  clear  she 
was  sister  and  not  daughter  to  Thomas  Marche  who  married 
Anne  Steward ;  and  thus  Vincent's  insinuation  (evidently  founded 
in  ignorance),  that  she  descended  from  the  Stewards  falls  to  the 
ground ;  the  true  position  of  her  pedigree  diverting  the  stream 
of  Steward  blood  into  another  channel  at  its  very  fountain-head. 
There  was  a  time  when  I  relied  on  Augustine  Vincent's  state- 
ments, verbatim  et  literatim  ;  but  I  begin  to  suspect  that  (though 
greatly  in  advance  of  his  predecessors,)  he  was  more  industrious 
than  careful.  However,  I  will  now  proceed  to  the  pedigree  I 
propose  committing  to  your  pages.

Qiiarterings  of  Marche  of  Ely  : 

1.  Steward.  Argent,  a  lion  rampant  gules,  armed  and  langued 
azure,  debruised  by  a  bend  raguly  or. 

2.  (Allowed  at  Canib.  Visit,  to  the  Stewards :  sed  qu.)  Or, 
a  fesse  chequy  argent  and  azure,  for  Stuart  of  Scotland. 

3.  Boreley,  of  co.  Norfolk.  Vert,  three  boar's  heads  erased 
argent,  langued  gules,  2  and  1. 

4.  Walkfare,  of  co.  Norfolk.  Argent,  a  lion  rampant  sable, 
armed  and  langued  gules. 

5.  Baskerville,  of — — — .  Argent,  a  chevron  gules  between 
three  hurts. 

These  quarterings  were  allowed  to  Steward  at  the  Cambridge 
Visit.  1619,  and  vested  in  the  descendants  of  Thomas  Marche, 
Esq.  of  Ely,  by  his  wife  Anne  Steward,  on  the  death  of  her  half- 
brother,  Sir  Thomas  Steward,  of  Ely,  Knt.  January  1635-6. 
The  other  coheirs  were  the  descendants  of  her  (whole  blood) 
sisters,  Mildred,  wife  of  Henry  Barker,  of  co.  Norfolk,  and  Bar- 
bara, wife  of  her  kinsman,  Thomas  Steward,  of  Stradset,  in 
that  county,  (and  her  half-blood  sisters,)  Catharine,  wife  of  Tho- 
mas Chabnor,  of  Mousley,  co.  Hereford ;  Elizabeth,  wife  of 
Robert  and  mother  of  Oliver  Cromwell ;  and  Eleanor,  wife  of 
Sir  John  Pooley,  of  Wrongey,  Knt.  who  also  had  issue. 

Quarterings  of  Marche  of  Haddenham  : 

1.  Humberstone.  Argent,  three  bars  sable,  and  in  chief  as 
many  pellets. 

2.  Skipwith.  Argent,  three  bars  gules,  and  in  chief  a  grey- 
hound courant  sable. 

3.  Rowlands.     Sable,  from  the  chief  a  pile  wavy  ermine. 

All  which  appear  on  the  Marche  memorials  in  Haddenham 

I  have  had  a  twofold  motive  for  communicating  this  pedigree. 
First,  there  being  so  far  no  History  of  Cambridgeshire,  while 
the  Marche  pedigree  would  be  thoroughly  essential  to  the  his- 
tory of  Haddenham  parish,  when  such  a  work  is  undertaken, 
this  article  may,  perhaps,  be  useful  to  the  future  historian  of  that 
county.  Secondly,  I  was  wishful  for  an  illustration  of  my  theory, 
"  that  in  mercenaiy  marriages  contrived  by  parents  and  guar- 
dians, their  very  object  is  generally  defeated  by  Providence.^* 
By  her  first  husband,  the  son  of  her  guardian,  the  heiress  of 
Marche  had  no    surviving  issue;  and,  so  compulsory   was  this 


marriage  on  the  former,  that  Cole  records,  "  though  she  was  a 
very  pretty  woman,  her  husband  was  never  fond  of  her,"  and  died 
at  the  early  age  of  32,  s.  p.  s.  before  the  eyes  of  his  plotting  fa- 
ther ;  who  so  seeing  his  dearest  hopes  blighted,  one  would  have 
thoufjht  would  have  been  ijlad  to  meddle  no  more  in  the  matter. 
But,  as  in  Mrs.  Trollope's  Tale  of  "One  Fault,"  the  money 
being  the  principal  attraction,  the  parent  clung  to  his  child's 
surviving  spouse  rather  than  forsake  the  property;  and  now 
speculated  upon  being  parent-iti-Iaw  to  a  "  ladyship."  Ac- 
cordingly this  same  old  lawyer  picked  up  the  expectant 
heir  of  a  baronetcy  for  his  daughter-in-law.  But  the  second 
project  was  scarcely  more  successful  than  the  first.  The 
worthy  heiress  had  extinguished  the  Gatward  family ;  and  she 
now  did  the  same  by  the  Wollaston  baronetcy.  She  had  no  sur- 
viving issue,  but  of  her  own  sex,  by  her  second  husband ;  and 
thus,  not  only  the  Wollaston  baronetcy,  and  the  male  line  of 
that  family  expired  ;  but  her  daughters  got  its  estates.  In  both 
cases,  the  "  biter  was  bit ;  "  for  both  Gatward  and  Wollaston 
owed  their  extinction  to  their  mercenary  matches  with  this 
wealthy  heiress ;  and  probably,  had  they  respectively  married 
other  wives,  they  would  now  have  been  prosperous  flourishing 
families.     There  is  no  pedigree  without  its  moral.

the  permission  of  God  bishop  of  LandafF  sendeth  greeting, 
mercy  and  blessinge.    Wheras  lately  certen  variaunce  and  dis- 


corde  betwene  one  David  Tew,  farmer  (as  it  is  sayd)  to  the  Prior 
of  the  Priorie  of  Ewenny  and  Rector  of  the  parish  church  or 
cliappell  of  Langynor  of  th'one  partye,  And  the  parishioners, 
dwellers  or  inhabitants  of  the  parish  of  the  said  church  or  chap- 
pell  of  Langynor,  of  the  other  parte,  hath  bene  raysed  and  moved 
before  us  sittinge  judicially  in  the  church  of  the  co'vent  of 
Ewenny,  namely,  the  eight  day  of  the  moneth  of  Maye  in  the 
yeare  of  our  Lorde  one  thousand  fower  hundred  sixty  and  six. 
We  thei-fore  wishinge  and  desiringe  to  extinguish,  put  out,  and 
quench  the  flames  of  strife  betwene  the  partyes  aforesayd,  as  we 
are  bound,  by  the  counsell  of  learned  lawiers  assistinge  us  in 
that  behaulfe.  And  the  sayd  Prior  beinge  ther  present,  we  de- 
creed and  commaunded  that  twelve  men  of  the  eldest  and  best  of 
credite  within  the  sayd  parish  of  Langynor  should  be  called 
before  us  the  sayd  daye  and  place,  and  in  the  presence  of  the

auntient  approved  and  prescribed  for  tythinge  or  payinge  of 
tenthes  within  the  foresaid  pai'ish.  Which  person nes  appearinge 
before  us  personally,  and  beinge  charged  upon  the  holie  Evan- 
gelistes  of  God,  we  made  diligent  inquisiclon  of  and  upon  the 
premisses  and  every  parte  therof,  who  upon  their  oath  deposed 
and  sayd  that  this  custome  followinge  of  tithinge  or  payinge  of 
tenthes  hath  bene  used  in  the  sayd  parish  of  Langynor  by  the 
tyme  wherof  the  memorie  of  man  ys  not  to  the  contrarie,  and 
accordinge  as  they  have  learned  and  heard  by  reporte  of  their 
auncestors,  and  as  they  have  scene  and  payd  in  their  own  tyme, 
Namely,  that  the  parishioners  and  inhabitantes  of  the  sayd  parish 
of  Langynor  were  wont  to  pay  unto  the  Prior  of  the  foresayd 
Priorie,  or  to  his  vicare  or  farmer,  for  every  calfe  one  halfe-penny

The  tenth  fleece  of  wooll,  The  tenth  cheese  in  five  monethes  of

three,  and  yf  they  had  twenty  they  afBrme  that  they  ought  to 
pay  one  :  And  of  their  kiddes  and  geese  in  like  maner,  that  ys  to 
saye  one  kydd  and  one  goose  albeit  they  have  but  three  in  the 
worlde,  and  in  twenty  they  ought  to  paye  after  the  same  maner  : 
And  for  an  horse  colt  one  penny,  for  a  mare  colt  an  halfepenny.

to  appertaine  ther  as  before  ys  sayd,  was  personally  present  allow- 
inge  the  foresayd  maner  of  tythinge  or  payinge  of  tenthes,  and 
holdinge  himselfe  therwith  contented,  choosinge  rather   (as  he 
affirmed)  to  agree  and  stand  unto  the  sayd  auntient  maner  of 
tythinge,  than  to  contend  and  strive  witli  the  parishioners  afore- 
sayd,  and  others  that  should  come  after,  for  a  newe  custome  or 
maner  of  tythinge  :  Because  the  end  of  lawe  was  doubtful],  he 
desired  earnestly  that   the  aforesayd  maner  of  tythinge  mighte 
all  way es  be  keptt.     We,   therfore,   John  the  byshop  aforesayd,

paying  of  tenthes  in  Langynor. 

The  parish  of  Llangeinwr  is  situated  in  the  manor  or  lordship  of 
Ogmore,  and  contains  about  6,700  acres.  At  the  time  of  the  survey  in 
26  Hen.  VIII.  the  tithes  of  Langynor  were  let  to  the  parishioners  and 
inhabitants  by  the  Priory  of  Ewenny  at  a  farm  of  Al.  6s.  8d.  (Valor 
Ecclesiasticus.)  They  have  now  been  commuted.  There  was  no  modus 
claimed  ;  the  impropriator,  C.  R.  Mansel  Talbot,  Esq.  of  Margam,  being 
entitled  to  all  tithes  in  kind.  Exemption,  however,  was  allowed  for 
about  72  acres,  which  had  been  recognised  as  exempt  in  19  Jas,  I. 
The  benefice  is  a  perpetual  curacy  in  the  diocese  and  archdeaconry  of 
Llandaff,  of  the  actual  yearly  value  of  7  U.  according  to  the  return  of

MANOR  OF   LANDIMORE   IN  GOWER,  9  EdW.  III.  1335. 

From  the  original  in  the  possession  of  George  Grant  Francis,  Esq. 
F.S.A.  Corresponding  Member  of  the   Society  of  Antiquaries  of 

By  the  following  charter  Gilbert  de  Turberville,  the  lord  of  Landi- 
more,  confirmed  to  Sir  Robert  de  Penres  certain  lands  in  that  lordship, 
which  Sir  Robert  had  acquired  from  the  family  of  Braose,  the  chief 
lords   of  Gower ;  one  of  whom.  Lord  William  de  Braose,  had   formerly 


disseised  the  ancestor  of  the  grantor,  a  former  Sir  Gilbert  de  Turberville, 
of  the  manor  of  Landymore,  which  he  held  in  fee  tail,  conjointly  with 
his  wife  Matilda.  An  earlier  charter,  relative  to  the  purchases  of  the 
same  Sir  Robert  de  Penres  in  Gower,  has  been  printed  in  the  first 
volume  of  the  present  work,  p.  536. 

Omnibus  Christi  fidelibus  ad  qiios  presens  scriptum  perve- 
nerit.  Gilbertus  de  Turbirvilla  dominns  de  Landymore  filius  et 
heres  domini  Pagani  de  Turbirvilla,  salutem  in  Domino  sempi- 
ternam.  Cum  dominus  Willelmus  de  Brewousa  filius  et  heres 
domini  Johannis  de  Brewousa  olim  disseisivit  dominum  Gilber- 
tum  de  Turbirvilla  proavum  meum  de  manerio  de  Landimore 
cum  pertinentiis  in  dominio  de  Gouheria,  qui  illud  tenuit  in 
feodo  talliato  conjunctim  cum  Matilde  uxore  ejus,  et  cujus  quidem 
manerii  feodum  et  jus  ad  me  tanquam  heredem  eorundem  perti- 
net.  Et  postmodum  predictus  dominus  Willelmus  de  Brewousa 
filius  et  heres  domini  Johannis  de  Brewousa,  et  dominus  Willel- 
mus de  Brewousa  dominus  Gouherie  filius  ejusdem  domini  Wil- 
lelmi,  et  dominus  Willelmus  de  Brewousa  filius  ejusdem  domini 
Willelmi  domini  Gouherie,  dominum  Robertum  de  Penres  mi- 
litem  heredes  suos  et  assignatos  ac  alios  tenentes  de  quibus  dictus 
dominus  Robertus  perquisivit,  de  aliquibus  terris  et  tenementis 
infra  illud  manerium  ad  exheredationem  meam  feofavisset  sub 
certa  forma  tenendis.  Noverit  universitas  vestra  me  dicto  do- 
mino Roberto  heredibus  suis  seu  assignatis  gratiam  velle  facere 
specialem  in  hac  parte,  ac  omnino  pro  me  et  heredibus  meis  quie- 
tum  clamare  in  perpetuum.  Concessi  eidem  domino  Roberto 
pro  mc  et  heredibus  meis  quod  ipse  dominus  Robertus  et  heredes 
sui  imperpetuum  habeant  et  teneant  omnia  predicta  terras  et 
tenementa  cum  pertinentiis  que  habuit  ex  dono  et  concessione 
dictorum  domini  Willelmi  de  Brewousa  filii  et  heredis  domini 
Johannis  de  Brewousa,  et  domini  Willelmi  de  Brewousa  domini 
Gouherie  filii  ejusdem  domini  Willelmi,  et  domini  Willelmi  de 
Brewousa  filii  ejusdem  domini  Willelmi  domini  Gouherie,  ac 
aliorum  tenendum  de  quibus  dictus  dominus  Robertus  perqui- 
sivit, de  me  et  heredibus  meis  per  servicia  et  consuetudines  que 
eidem  domino  Willelmo  domino  Gouherie  inde  fecit,  et  per 
sectam  ad  curiam  raeam  ibidem  de  tribus  septimanis  in  tres 
septimanas  et  per  forinseca  servicia  que  ad  ilia  tenementa  perti- 
nent. Salva  tamen  mihi  et  heredibus  meis  coo-nicione  omnium 
placitorum  ad  curiam  meam  de  Landymore  contingencium  om- 



niiim  tenencium  et  residencium  infra  feodum  meum  de  Landj- 
more.  Nolens  quod  idem  dominus  Robertus,  heredes  sui  sen 
assignati,  per  me  heredes  meos  ve[l]  assignatos  aliquo  alio  titulo 
occasionentur  nee  in  aliquo  molestentur  seu  graventur.  In  cujus 
rei  testimonium  presenti  scripto  sigillum  meum  apposui.  Hiis 
testibus.  Domino  Johanne  de  Langetona  milite.  Johanne  de 
la  Bere.  Ricardo  de  Penres.  Willelmo  de  Penres.  Roberto 
de  la  Mare.  Et  multis  aliis.  Datum  apud  Landjmore  vicesimo

by  a  fesse.     Legend,  "  *  s'.  gilbebti  tvrbervile." 

It  may  be  curious  to  note,  that  all  the  authorities  combine  in  giving 
the  arms  of  Turberville,  Chequy  or  and  gules,  a  fesse  ermine  ;  crest, 
an  eagle  displayed  or.  The  seal  to  this  charter  would  seem  to  have 
arms  and  crest  combined  in  the  coat  armour  j  for  in  the  Encaustic  Tiles 
given  in  my  "  Neath  and  its  abbey,"  the  arms  are  simply  chequy  with 
the  fesse,  G.  G.  F.

hind each  a  tree  eradicated.   (Charters,  57  C.  39  and  41.)

The  existence,  and  consequently  the  marriage  of  Elizabeth,  daughter 
of  Thomas  Beauchainp  Earl  of  Warwick,  has  been  overlooked  by  genea- 
logists. Dugdale,  in  his  History  of  Warwickshire,  has  described,  with 
the  aid  of  an  engraving,  the  several  windows  on  the  south  side  of  the 
quire  of  the  collegiate  church  of  Warwick,  in  which  are  represented  the 
figures  of  this  Earl's  ten  daughters,  each  of  the  married  bearing  on  her 
outer  mantle  the  arms  of  her  husband.  Of  these  ladies  two,  Isabella 
and  Elizabeth,  thus  bore  the  arms  of  Ufford  ;  and  this  circumstance, 
joined  to  the  fact  that  the  names  of  Isabella  and  Elizabeth  have  been 
sometimes  considered  synonymous,  induced  Dugdale  to  conjecture,  un- 
fortunately enough,  that  Isabella  and  Elizabeth  were  one,  and  that  the 
repetition  of  the  figure  denoted  only  the  first  marriage  of  the  former 
with  John  Lord  Strange  of  Blackmere. 

Mr.  Beltz,  in  his  Memorials  of  the  Order  of  the  Garter,  is  wholly 
silent  with  regard  to  the  marriage  of  Sir  Thomas  Ufford,  whom  he,  how- 
ever, was  the  first  to  identify  as  the  brother  of  William  Earl  of  Suffolk. 
As  he  was  buried  at  the  Greyfriars,  Ipswich,  we  may  believe  that  he  did 
not  fall,  as  Mr.  Beltz  supposes,  in  the  fight  in  the  neighbourhood  of 
Navarete  in  1369. 

The  father  of  Sir  James  de  Audley  was  summoned  to  Parliament  as 
Hugh  de  Audley  senior,  15  May  1321,  according  to  Sir  N.  H.  Nico- 
las (Synopsis  of  the  Peerage),  who  incorrectly  makes  his  second  son, 
Hugh  de  Audley  junior,  his  son  and  heir.  (See  Beltz*  Memorials  of  the 
Order  of  the  Garter,  p.  82,  83.)  Sir  James  de  Audley,  his  eldest  son 
and  heir,  was  never  summoned  to  Parliament.  His  eldest  son  was  the 
celebrated  Sir  James  de  Audley,  K.G.  whom  Mr.  Stapleton  has  con- 
founded with  his  father  in  Archaeol.  xxvi.  f.  345. 

Godwin,  Catalogue  of  Bishops,  p.  111,  says  that  John  de  Ufford,  ap- 
pointed Lord  Chancellor  in  1346,  and  Archbishop  of  Canterbury  24 
Apr.  1348,  and  who  died  7  June  1349,  was  son  of  the  Earl  of  Suffolk. 
If  of  the  family,  he  may  have  been  brother  of  the  first  Earl.  Andrew 
de  Ufford,  brother  of  the  Archbishop,  appointed  Archdeacon  of  Middle- 
sex in  \2)^7,  Joint  Keeper  of  the  Great  Seal  in  1353,  and  confirmed, 
according  to  Godwin,  Bishopof  St.  David's,  6  Feb.  1349,  died  in  1358. 
For  particulars  of  him,  see  Newcourt,  vol.  i.  p.  79. 

The  MS.  Harl.  1393,  f.  15,  states  that  Cecilia  de  Ufford  married  also 
Sir  William  Blount. 

Beltz,  Memorials  of  the  Order  of  the  Garter,  p.  101,  incorrectly  says 
that  Maud  de  Ufford  was  abbess  of  Barking,  confounding  her  with  her 


kinswoman  Maud  de  Montacute.  He  also  as  incorrectly  says  (p.  212,) 
that  Isabell  de  Beauchamp  married  secondly  John  Lord  Strange,  and 
that  Sir  Ralph  de  Ufford  was  elder  brother  of  Robert  first  Earl  of  Suf- 
folk, (f.  249.) 

So  says  the  Esc.  \^  Hen.  IV.  m.  1/  ;  but  there  can  be  no  doubt  that 
the  jury  found  the  heirship  incorrectly.  The  finding  should  have  been 
that  Robert  Lord  Willoughby  was  cousin  and  heir  of  Maud  Countess  of 
Oxford  through  Cecilia  his  great-grandmother,  eldest  sister  and  coheir 
of  William  Earl  of  Suffolk,  eldest  son  of  Robert  Earl  of  Suffolk,  bro- 
ther of  Sir  Ralph  de  Ufford  father  of  the  said  Maud. 

A  Sir  Robert  de  Ufford  was  buried  at  the  Austin  Friars,  Norwich. 
(Weever's  Fun.  Men.  p.  720.) 

Walter  de  Offord  held  lands,  jointly  with  Geoffrey  de  Suthorp,  in 
Northamptonshire,  in  1300,  (Esc.  29  Edw.  I.  n.  HO,)  among  which 
were  tenements  in  the  parish  of  Offord,  held  by  wardship  of  Rocking- 
ham Castle. 

John  de  Ufford  held  lands  in  Wedon  Pinkeney,  Northamptonshire,  iu 
1301,  (Esc.  30  Edw.  L  n.  110,)  and  also  as  John  de  Dufford,  in  1303, 
with  Cecilia  his  wife.  (Esc.  32  Edw.  L  n.  90.)  In  11  Edw.  11.  (1317) 
his  name  occurs  as  Sir  John  de  Dufford,  Knight,  with  Cecilia  his  wife 
in  a  charter  respecting  t  he  manor  of  Bradecote  .  .  .  (orig.  char- 
ters Brit.  Mus.V.  5  ;  and  a  seal  lately  found  near  Wallingford,  Berkshire, 
having  upon  it  the  arras  of  Ufford  charged  in  canton  with  a  star 
of  six  points,  and  the  legend  S"  JOl^'IS  DS  DVPFORDG,  may,  with 
some  degree  of  confidence,  be  assigned  to  hina.a  (Engraved  in  the 
Archaeological  Journal,  iii.    75.) 

In  the  Collectanea  Topographica  et  Genealogica,  vol.  V.  pp.  IS^,  155, 
and  VIII.  179,  180,  are  articles  on  the  Ufford  pedigree,  of  which  that 
now  compiled  is  a  correction. 

11  February    1847.  G.  S.  S. 

*  In  the  Archaeological  Journal  (iibi  supra)  this  seal  is  ascribed  to  John  Lord 
UfFord,  summoned  to  Parliament  in  1360,  mentioned  in  p.  274,  but  who  is  tliere  de- 
scribed as  the  son  and  heir  of  Ralph  de  Ufford,  brother  of  Robert  first  Earl  of  Suf- 
folk. The  following  remarks  on  the  arms  it  exhibits  are  then  added  :  "  Mr.  Davy, 
of  Ufford,  who  has  obligingly  supplied  several  instances  of  the  name  having  been 
written  '  de  Dufford,'  selected  from  the  Leiger  Book  of  Blytbburgh  Priory,  ob- 
serves that  the  Uffords  derived  their  arms,  Sable,  across  engrailed  or,  in  the  first 
quarter  a  mullet  argent,  from  the  family  of  Peyton,  settled  at  Ufford  ;  Glover,  in  his 
Ordinary,  assigning  this  coat  to  Peyton.  On  the  other  hand,  in  Bloomfield's  His- 
tory of  Norfolk,  it  is  stated  that  the  Uffords  bore  this  device  by  permission  of  the 
family  of  Hovel." — Edit.

The  remote  antiquity  of  the  family  of  Plomer,  or  Plumer,  precludes 
all  accuracy  of  the  developement  of  its  origin.  "  Traditionally  they  de- 
rive from  a  noble  Saxon  knight,  who  lived  in  the  time  of  King  Alfred." 
(Burke's  Comm.  under  Plumer  Ward.)  They  have  been  long  seated  in 
Hertfordshire,  vi'here  they  ranked  with  the  most  distinguished  of  the  gen- 
try of  that  county  ;  and  so  far  back  as  the  year  1361,  Peter  le  Plomer, 
a  person  of  considerable  note  and  great  opulence,  was  M.P.  for  St, 
Alban's  ;  and  Robert  Plomer  was  Sheriflfof  the  county  in  1495.

f  The  frequent  inaccuracy  of  Weever's  work  cannot  escape  the  observation  of 
those  who  compare  his  statements  with  existing  remains.  Another  occasion  of  re- 
marking it  has  occurred  in  a  recent  article  (p.  226).  It  appears  probable  that  much 
of  his  book,  as  in  the  present  instance,  was  compiled  from  the  collections  of  the 
heralds,  and  not  from  personal  visits  ;  and  he  was  consequently  subject  to  the  care- 
lessness of  his  predecessors,  and  to  risks  of  mistranscription. — Edit.

The  intention  of  this  paper  seems  to  have  been  to  show  what  advantages  had  been 
taken  by  the  Chancellor  of  the  Augmentations,  Sir  Robert  Riche,  in  granting 
leases  of  several  portions  of  church  property,  and  how  small  a  share  of  the  proceeds 
had  found  their  way  to  the  royal  coifers.  The  case  was  a  common  one :  but  the 
document  contains  some  valuable  particulars  as  to  the  estates  it  mentions.

held  of  the  fee  of  the  Earl  of  Gloucester  in  Mersfield,  to  Payne  de  Tur-

Walter  Waleran  died  in  the  second  year  of  King  John,  a.d.  1200.

head  the  witnesses.  Various  notices  of  the  coheirs  of  Walter  de  Wale-

F.S.A.  Honorary  Librarian  of  the  Royal  Institution  of  South 
Wales,  and  Corresponding  Member  of  the  Society  of  Antiquaries 
of  Scotland. 

The  "  Marchelmaur"  of  this  charter  is  believed  to  be  the  same 
place  as  Merthyr  Mawr,  already  mentioned  in  vol.  I.  p.  533.  "  Merthyr 
Mawr  is  holden  by  knight's  service  under  Lanbleithan — it  was  once  the 
land  of  the  Sewards,  and  came  to  the  Berkrolls  by  marrying  an  heiress 
of  Sewards ;  and  from  Barkrolls  to  StradHng  by  the  abovesaid  mar- 
riage. Thomas  Lord  Bishop  of  Landaffe  is  patron  of  the  church  there." 
(Sir  Thomas  Phillipps's  Glamorganshire  Pedigrees,  p.  48.)  It  is  situated 
near  Bridgend,  and  the  ruins  of  Ogmore  castle  are  within  the  parish. 
Of  this  castle  an  interesting  survey,  accompanied  by  a  plan,  will  be  found 
in  the  Gentleman's  Magazine  for  March  1835.  Merthyr  Mawr  is  now 
the  property  of  the  Right  Hon.  John  Nicholl,D.C.L.,  M.P.  for  CardiflF. 
The  land  conveyed  by  this  charter  was  situated  partly  at  "  le  brode  yate," 
that  is,  the  broad  way  or  road;  and  partly  at  "  quinteynesmede,"  a  re- 
markable name,  and  probably  the  meadow  in  which  the  young  chivalry  of 
the  neighbouring  castle  were  wont  to  exercise  in  the  martial  sport  of  the 
quintain.  Was  Robert  le  Reymer,  one  of  the  witnesses,  a  Welsh  bard, 
or  an  English  one  ?  John  le  Hayward  was  doubtless  one  of  those  offi- 
cers still  appointed  at  Courts  Leet.

VOL.    II.  X 



To  the  Editor  of  the  Topographer. 

The  accompanying  rough  notes  relate  to  the  monumental 
records  of"  two  churches  in  Hampshire.  It  is  much  to  be  re- 
gretted that  this,  and  other  counties,  which  have,  as  yet,  found 
no  historian,  are  daily  exposed,  by  the  neglect  of  the  indifferent, 
and  the  "  repairs  "  of  the  ignorant  (though  by  no  means  so  in 
the  present  case),  to  a  fate  from  which  nothing  but  the  printing 
press  can  save  them.^ 


This  church,  which  is  very  small,  consists  of  a  nave  and  chan- 
cel. It  has  a  bell  turret  at  the  west  end,  and  a  plain  south 
porch.  The  east  window  has  three  cinquefoiled  lights  with  a 
perpendicular  heading,  and  the  west  window  is  somewhat  similar. 
The  other  windows  are  not  remarkable.  The  roof  is  raftered, 
and  the  whole  church  has  been  recently  rebuilt. 

.  There  are  but  few  monumental  inscriptions,  and  none  of  any 

In  the  chancel  are  mural  slabs  commemorating, 

1.  The  Rev.  Henry  White,  26  years  Rector,  who  died 
December  27,  1788,  in  his  55th  year,  leaving  a  widow  and  ten 
children.  Elizabeth,  the  widow,  died  Dec.  9th,  1815,  in  her 
81st  year. 

2.  The  Rev.  Philip  Poore,  Rector  from  1829  to  1837; 
born  Oct.  13.  1803;  died  July  28,  1837. 

3.  Christian,  wife  of  the  Rev.  Charles  Henry  White, 
Rector  of  Shalden,  daughter  of  Alexander  St.  Barbe;  born 
Aug.  21,  1784;  died  July  3,  1806. 

On  the  floor  is  a  slab  covering  the  grave  of  Christian  White. 

*  Church  Notes  of  the  following  parishes  in  the  same  county,  by  the  same  Con- 
tributor, will  be  found  in  the  Vllth  and  Vlllth  volumes  of  the  Collectanea  Topo- 
graphica  et  Genealogica,  viz.  Aldershot,  Basing,  Bentley,  Binsted,  Cliddesden,  Cron- 
dall,  Dogmersfield,  Elvetham,  Eversley,  Farley  Wallop,  Froyle,  Sherbourne  St. 
John,  Long  Sutton,  South  Warnborough,  Winchfield,  and  Yately. — Edit. 


The  seats  are  open.  The  font,  described  as  plain,  has  not 
yet  been  replaced,  and  the  pulpit  and  reading  desk  are,  appa- 
rently, unfinished. 

Against  the  north  wall  of  the  nave  is  a  marble  monument  to 
John  Haywaud,  gent,  and  Anne  his  wife,  daughter  of  John 
Winckworth,  of  Fy field.  He  died  May  1,  1709,  aged  43.  She 
died  Oct.  3,  1728,  aged  63.  They  left  issue  John,  Thomas, 
James,  and  Anne. 


This  church  consists  of  a  nave  and  chancel.  The  tower, 
which  is  at  the  west  end,  has  been  thrown  open  to  the  body  of 
the  nave,  apparently  for  the  purpose  of  accommodating  the 
school  children,  and  a  sort  of  north  chapel  has  been  added  to  the 
chancel  as  a  substitute  for  a  vestry. 

The  east  window  consists  of  three  trefoiled  lights ;  that  in  the 
centre  being  the  longest.  The  stained  glass  is  entirely  new. 
The  centre  light  has  a  representation  of  the  Crucifixion.  That 
on  the  right  has  the  taking  down  from  the  Cross.  That  on  the 
left  the  bearing  the  Cross.  Underneath  is  inscribed  : — 
"  Per  crucem  et  passionem  tuam  libera  nos  D'ne." 

The  communion  table  is  of  stone,  and  therefore  not  strictly  in 
accordance  with  law,  but  rendered  less  heterodox  by  a  crimson 
cloth  covering.  There  is  a  gilt  alms'  dish  with  the  figures  of 
Adam  and  Eve  in  Paradise.  This  again  is  flanked  by  a 
couple  of  candlesticks  duly  provided  with  candles,  and  handsome 
brazen-clasped  books  for  the  use  of  the  officiating  ministers.  If 
the  candles  are  to  give  light,  well  and  good ;  if  not,  their 
meaning  must  be  superstitious,  and  ought  not  to  be  tolerated. 
It  is  one  thing  to  allow  candlesticks,  as  in  our  cathedrals,  to 
stand  where  they  have  always  stood,  by  prescription  as  it  were, 
and  another  to  re-introduce  an  obsolete  appendage.  Upon  the 
same  principle  we  might  clothe  our  priests  in  vestments,  cut  off 
the  crown  of  their  hair,  and  enjoin  them  to  celibacy.  We  have 
already,  in  other  places,  slid  into  sedilia,  and  begun  to  mumble 
our  prayers  in  plain  chaunting.  It  may  here  be  observed  that 
the  door  of  the  church  was  open,  conveniently  for  the  anti- 
quary, though  evidently  to  assimilate  it,  as  far  as  is  possible,  to 
the  usages  of  the  Roman  Catholic  churches. 

In  the  south  wall,  near  the  communion  table,  is  an  ancient  pis- 

X  2 


cina ;  and  near  it,  and  under  a  canopied  arch,  with  figures  of  angels 
holding  blank  shields,  is  an  altar-tomb  with  paneled  sides,  and 
plain  shields  in  the  paneling.  Part  of  the  arch  has  been  bricked  up, 
and  a  portion  of  the  sculpture  may  still  be  seen  on  the  outside. 
A  monumental  slab,  bearing  an  effigy  in  mail,  and  with  a  square 
helmet,  the  whole  much  mutilated,  and  the  legs  gone,  but  with 
the  appearance  of  a  shield  on  the  left  arm,  and  held  in  front  of 
the  body,  has  been  placed  on  this  tomb.  It  is  stated  to  have 
been  removed  from  the  outside  of  the  church  near  the  south  wall. 
This  effigy  is  obviously  of  a  date  anterior  to  the  monument  on 
which  it  rests ;  and  the  will  of  Sir  Nicholas  Lisle,  dated  1496,  and 
proved  in  1506,  in  which  he  desires  to  be  buried  on  the  south 
side  of  the  high  altar,  seems  to  establish  the  fact  of  its  being  the 
place  of  his  sepulture  and  monument. 

On  the  north  side  of  the  chancel,  and  exactly  opposite  the 
above-mentioned  altar-tomb,  is  another  altar-tomb  with  three 
rich  panelings  on  the  south  side,  and  in  the  centre  of  each  of 
which  was  originally  a  shield  of  arms  in  brass.  The  west  side 
also  exhibits  traces  of  a  shield  in  brass.  Round  the  ledge  was  a 
brass  band,  with  the  inscription,  now  entirely  gone.  The  north 
side,  no  doubt,  corresponded,  but  the  whole  appears  to  have  been 
altered,  and  the  style  is  different. 

On  the  north  side  are  two  panelings  with  shields.  The  left 
bears.  Quarterly,  I  and  4>,  on  a  chief  three  lions  rampant 
(Lisle) ;  2  and  3,  a  fess  between  three  choughs.  The  panel  on 
the  right  has  a  lozenge-shaped  shield  bearing  the  coat  of 
Courtenay,  with  a  label  charged  with  roundels.  Under  the 
canopied  arch,  which  is  immediately  over  this  monument,  are 
the  effigies  of  a  man  and  his  wife,  of  stone,  and  lying  on  a 
slab,  now  placed  on  the  original  tomb.  The  head  of  the 
male  rests  on  his  shield.  He  is  in  plate  armour,  and  his  surcoat 
bears  the  arms  of  Lisle,  quarterly,  with  the  coat  above-men- 
tioned. He  has  a  collar  of  SS.,  and  his  feet  rest  on  his  gaunt- 
lets. The  hands  of  both  are  in  the  attitude  of  prayer.  This 
monument  has  been  restored,  and  is  in  excellent  preservation. 
In  the  centre  of  the  cornice  on  the  south  side,  as  also  on  the 
north,  is  a  shield  surmounted  by  a  helmet,  and  charged  with 
the  two  quarterly  coats  before-mentioned. 

This  must  be  the  monument  of  Sir  John  Lisle,  son  of  Sir 
Nicholas  before-mentioned,  whose  will  is  dated  1520,  and  was 


proved  in  1624.  He  desires  an  ambulator  chapel  to  be  erected 
on  the  north  side  of  the  church,  near  vvhich  he  directs  to  be 
bui'ied.  The  will  of  his  wife,  Mary  Lady  Lisle,  proved  also  in 
1524,  contains  a  similar  notice  of  this  chapel. 

At  the  west  end  of  this  monument  is  another  and  larger  arch, 
the  paneling  in  the  soffit  of  which  is  good,  and  in  the  spandrils 
are  shields,  one  of  which  bears  the  coat  of  Lisle.  This  arch  now 
incloses  the  pew  of  Sir  John  Pollen,  Bart,  the  lord  of  the  manor.* 

On  the  floor  of  the  chancel  is  a  very  fine  brass,  representing  a 
man  in  plate  armour,  under  a  rich  triple-arched  canopy,  with 
four  shields  at  the  angles  of  the  stone,  and  a  band,  with  the  in- 
scription.    On  the  shields  are  the  following  arms: — 

1.  Lisle. 

2.  The  brass  gone ;  but  a  chevron  between  three  martlets. 

3.  Lisle,  impaling  three  roundels. 

4.  Lisle,  impaling,  apparently  (the  brass  being  lost),  a  chevron 
between  three  roundels. 

The  inscription  is  as  follows ; — 

"  Sub  lapide  isto  jacent  pie  memorie  dominus  Johannes 
Lysle  miles,  dominus  de  Wodynton  in  Insula  Vecta,  et  domina 
Elisabeth  Lysle  uxor  ejus.  Idem  dominus  Johannes  obiit  ultimo 
die  mensis  Januarii  Anno  Domini  Millesimo  cccco  vii".  Eorum 
anime  pace  fruantur  eterna.     Amen." 

Respecting  this  monument  there  can  be  no  doubt.  This  Sir 
John  Lisle  was  the  father  of  another  Sir  John,  and  the  grand- 
father of  Sir  Nicholas.  His  will  is  dated  in  1407,  and  was 
proved  in  1409.  He  desires  to  be  buried  in  the  church  at 
Thruxton.  The  will  of  his  son  Sir  John  is  dated  1468,  and  was 
proved  in  the  same  year.  He  also  desires  to  be  buried  in  the 
church  at  Thruxton.  The  e&igy  in  mail,  now  on  the  south  monu- 
ment, in  all  probability  represents  one  of  the  earlier  members  of 
the  family  then  bearing  the  name  of  de  Insula.  They  had  large 
possessions  in  the  Isle  of  Wight;  but  Thruxton  was  their  burial 
place,  and  the  manor  of  Chute,  in  that  neighbourhood,  was  held 
by  them  in  the  beginning  of  the  13th  century.  The  estate  of 
Thruxton,  where  they  had  a  residence,  passed,  on  the  extinction 
of  the   issue    of  Sir  Nicholas    Lisle,  to  the  heirs  of  his   sister 

*  There  was  originally  what  was  called  a  north  aisle  here,  and  it  was,  in  all  pro- 
bability, the  ambulator  chapel  beforementioned. 


Elizabeth  Phillpot,  and  remained  in  that  family  for  many  gene- 
rations. It  is  stated,  in  Berry's  Hampshire  Genealogies,  that 
this  (the  Phillpot)  line  "  has  failed."  Such,  however,  can  by  no 
means  be  the  fact,  as  an  inspection  of  the  pedigrees  in  the  Visi- 
tations at  the  College  of  Arms  will  prove. 

A  short  notice  of  an  ill-fated  member  of  this  family,  Mrs. 
Alice  Lisle,  who,  by  the  tender  mercies  of  James  the  Second 
and  Judge  JefFeries,  was  permitted  to  exchange  the  faggot  for 
the  axe,  may  not  be  irrelevant. 

She  was  five  years  of  age  in  1622,  and  was  the  daughter  of 
Sir  Thomas  Beconsawe,  her  mother  being  one  of  the  family  of 
Bond  of  Dorsetshire.  Her  husband  was  descended  from  an 
imcle  of  Sir  Nicholas  Lisle.  In  Berry's  Hampshire  Genealo- 
gies, they  are  stated  to  have  left  an  only  son  John,  who  died  in 
1709,  leaving  a  son  Charles,  who  died  in  1721,  and  with  whom 
the  blood  of  Alice  Lisle  is  said  to  have  become  extinct.  This  does 
not  appear  to  be  the  fact.  The  Petitioners  for  the  reversal  of  the 
attainder  of  Mrs.  Lisle  were  her  daughters  Tryphena  Lloyd  and 
Bridget  Usher,  and  their  petition  was  acceded  to  in  the  first  of 
William  and  Mary.     Bridget  Usher  was,  as  I  am  informed,  first 

married  to Hoare,  President  of  Cambridge  University  in 

New  England.  Their  daughter,  Bridget  Hoare,  married  Thomas 
Cotton,  a  non-conforming  minister,  who  died  in  1730  ;  and  the 
lateBayes  Cotton,  Esq.  of  Kenilworth,  in  Warwickshire,  was  their 
grandson.  The  grandson  of  Mrs.  Lisle,  Charles  Crooke  Lisle,  of 
Moyles  Court,  entailed  his  estates  on  his  distant  cousin  Edward 
Lisle,  of  Crux  Easton,  and  his  issue,  and  made  no  mention  of  his 
aunts  or  their  descendants,  which  may  have  given  rise  to  the  idea 
that  all  issue  of  that  line  was  extinct. 

Against  the  north  wall  is  a  slab  commemorative  of  the  Rev. 
Lancelot  Greenthwaite  Halton,  31  years  Rector.  He  died 
March  29,  1832,  aged  69.  Also  Mrs.  Frances  Halton,  who 
died  April  9,  1811,  aged  85. 

The  north  window  has  two  cinquefoiled  lights  filled  with  mo- 
dern stained  glass.  This  is,  in  fact,  the  case  with  every  window, 
and  the  consequence  is  that  the  whole  of  the  church  is  incon- 
veniently darkened.  The  seats  are  open,  and  there  is  a  carved 
desk  of  oak  for  the  reading  of  the  lessons.  The  font  is  of  stone, 
octagonal,  with  a  richly  painted  and  gilt  cover  of  wood.  The 
panels  are  also  enriched  with  coloured  and  gilt  shields,  bearing 


crosses,  &c.  and  there  is  a  drain  for  the  water  to  be  drawn 
off,  according  to  the  practice  of  remote  times. 

The  west  window,  which  is  in  the  tower,  contains  some  very 
inferior  stained  glass,  representing  the  royal  arms,  and  the  arms 
of  the  see  of  Winchester. 

The  small  north  chapel,  or  vestry,  near  the  chancel,  has  a 
modern  altar-tomb,  on  which  are  carved,  in  bold  relief,  a  pastoral 
staff  and  an  open  Bible.  On  its  leaves  are  "  Nanny  Baynes, 
Dec.  5,  1842."  "  Blessed  are  the  dead  which  die  in  the  Lord." 
The  ledse  is  inscribed,  "  I  believe  in  the  communion  of  saints." 

On  the  floor  is  the  grave-stone  of  Lady  Baynes,  who  died 
Dec.  5,  1842,  aged  78,  being  the  widow  of  Sir  Christopher 
Baynes,  Bart,  of  Harefield  Place,  Middlesex,  who  died  March 
16,  1837,  aged  82,  and  was  buried  in  the  Abbey  Church,  at 
Bath.  Their  children  are  stated  to  have  raised  the  adjoining 
tomb  as  a  memorial  of  their  affection. 

In  the  churchyard,  on  the  north  side,  is  a  coffin-shaped  stone 
slab,  ornamented  with  a  cross,  and  which  is  said  to  have  been 
removed  from  the  nave. 

The  tower  of  this  church  is  embattled,  and  it  has  four  small 
turrets  with  pinnacles.  Below  is  a  cornice  in  an  arabesque  style, 
and  some  shields  with  arms.  One  bearing  the  coat  of  Lisle ; 
another  that  of  the  fess  between  three  choughs.  There  is  a 
cross  of  stone  on  the  east  end  of  the  chancel. 

The  graves  in  the  churchyard  are,  here  and  there,  orna- 
mented with  flowers,  and  the  whole  has  an  air  of  much  neatness. 
The  only  thing  to  be  regretted  is  that  the  zealous  and  praise- 
worthy desire  of  incumbents  to  improve  and  restore  their  churches 
should  be  accompanied,  as  is  now  too  often  the  case,  by  many 
puerile  and,  I  must  add,  reprehensible  endeavours,  to  run  in 
as  near  to  the  Roman  ritual,  and  Romish  ceremonies,  and  Romish 
paraphernalia,  as  can  be  done  with  due  regard  to  the  retention 
of  posts  to  which  the  parties  have  been  preferred  by  a  Protesting 

Your  obedient  servant,

For  whom  and  by  whose  authority  the  following  curious  notices  were 
made  does  not  appear  ;  but  they  contain  internal  evidence  shewing  that 
they  were  compiled  in  the  reign  of  Edward  the  Fourth,  that  is,  after  the 
death  of  Sir  Thomas  Browne,  of  Beechworth  Castle,  in  July  1460,  and 
before  that  of  George  Duke  of  Clarence  in  February  1478.  They  are 
taken  from  a  verbatim  copy  of  the  original  made  by  Robert  Honiwood 
of  Charing,  and  preserved  in  his  MS.  volume,  from  which  copious  ex- 
tracts relating  to  the  Honiwood  family  have  been  printed  in  two  former 
articles.  Although  they  do  not  appertain  directly  to  his  own  family, 
nevertheless,  the  reasons  for  Mr.  Honiwood's  transcribing  them  are  ob- 
vious ;  viz.  his  second  wife's  descent,  through  her  father,  from  Sir 
Thomas  Arundel,  Knt.  of  Beechworth  Castle,  brother  of  Sir  Edward, 
the  personage  whom  they  chiefly  affect ;  and  their  value  as  old  and  ori- 
ginal evidence. 

It  is  worthy  of  remark  that  their  intrinsic  value  is  greatly  enhanced, 
and  the  evidence  rendered  unique,  in  consequence  of  the  non-existence 
amongst  the  Public  Records  of  any  inquest  upon  the  death  of  Sir  Ed- 
ward Arundel ;  and,  considering  that  the  manor  and  lordship  of  Aynho, 
the  only  real  property  he  possessed,  were  held  in  socage,  and  not  in 
chief,  it  is  probable  that  not  even  a  writ  of  inquiry  was  issued  by  the 
Crown  on  his  death.  To  this  absence  of  any  particulars  concerning 
him  in  the  public  records,  is  attributable  the  total  silence  of  the  old 
heralds  as  to  his  marriage  and  death.  Baker,  in  his  account  of  Aynho 
(History  of  Northamptonshire,  vol.  i.  p.  546,  et  seq.)  has  gathered  to- 
gether every  particular  respecting  him  hitherto  recorded  and  known  ; 
nevertheless  he  failed  to  discover  the  time  of  Sir  Edward's  death,  and 
that  he  left  no  issue.  He,  however,  gives  the  Christian  name  of  Sir 
Edward's  wife  (as  does  also  Bridges  in  his  History  of  Northampton- 
shire), upon  the  authority  of  the  Cartwright  evidences,  but  errs  in  coin- 
ing for  her  a  son,  and  marrying  the  fiction  to  Elizabeth  Le  Despencer, 
who,  had  he  ever  existed,  would  have  been  his  grandmother.  In  the 
pedigree  of  Fitzalan,  annexed  to  that  account,  no  mention  is  made    of 


Sir   Thomas  Arundel  of  Beechworth  Castle,  brother  of  Sir   Edward. 
In   like  manner,  Manning  and  Bray,  in  their  accomit  of  Sir  Thomas 
Arundel,  (History  of  Surrey,  vol.  i.  p.  556,)  are  silent  as  to  his  brother 
Sir  Edward  of  Aynho.     In  Tierney's  History  of  Arundel,  although  his 
account  is  generally  correct,  Sir  Edward  is  miscalled  Edmund.     And  in 
the  well-laboured  pedigree  of  the  Mautravers  branch  of  the  Fitzalans 
annexed  to  the  notices  of  Sir  Richard  Arundel  in  the  Collectanea  Topo- 
graphica,  vol.  VI.  pp.  16,  17,  Sir  Edward  and  his  brother  Sir  Thomas 
are  not  mentioned.     Dugdale  (Bar.  vol.  i.  p.  318,  321)  omits  all  the 
younger  children  and  younger  grandchildren,  with  their  descendants,  of 
Sir  John  de  Arundel  Chevaler  senior,  the  grandfather  of  Sir  Edward 
and  Sir  Thomas,  and  progenitor  of  that  branch  which  inherited    the 
Barony  and  estates  of  Mautravers,   and  which,  after  the  lapse  of  three 
generations,  came  into  possession  of  the  castle  and  earldom  of  Arundel ; 
restricting  his  account  to  the  direct  lineal  descent  of  the  heir  male,  who 
in  1415  succeeded  to  the  possession  and  inheritance   of  the  castle  and 
earldom  ;  yet,  in  his  Summary  (p.  321)  of  the  leading  events  in  the 
life  of  the  new  Earl's  father,  he  commits  a  series  of  gross  errors  in  mis- 
appropriating to  the  father  the  history  of  the  grandfather,  and  omitting 
the  father  altogether ;  whereby  the  pedigree  is  deprived  of  a  generation, 
his  previous  statements  rendered  contradictory   and  irreconcileable,  and 
the  whole  account  confused.     Relying  on  the  accuracy  of  this  narrative 
of  Dugdale,  the  historians  of  Surrey  and  Northamptonshire,  and  others, 
in  their  accounts  of  this  family,  have  committed  the  same  errors  ;  even 
so  the  Committees  of  Lords,  in  their  Reports  upon  the  Dignity  of  a 
Peer  of  the  Realm,  when  treating  of  the  case  of  the  Earldom  of  Arun- 
del, (First  Report,  p.  426,)  after  having  minutely  investigated  the  pro- 
ceedings in  the  Parliament  of  1 1  Hen.  VI.  upon  the  claim  and  admission 
of  the  possessor  of  the   castle  and  honour  of  Arundel  to  the  estate, 
title,  and  dignity  of  Earl  of  Anindel  by  virtue   of  tenure,  leave  out  a 
generation  in  this  branch  of  the  family,  notwithstanding  the  evidence 
in  those  proceedings  to  the  contrary.     It  is  true  that  the  lineal  descent 
of  the  heir  male   of  this  branch  is  correctly  stated  in  the  article  in  the 
Collectanea  referred  to  above,  in  Tierney's  Arundel,  and  Milles's  Cata- 
logue of  Honour  (pp.  631,  652) ;  which  last  account  gives  the  issue 
more  fully  and  with  fewer  errors  than  any  other.     But,  from  what  has 
been  already  observed,  there  appears  reason  for  appending  to  these  no- 
tices of  Sir  Edward  Arundel,  Knt.  corroborative  evidence  of  their  accu- 
racy, taken  from  the  Public   Records,   and  restating  the  history  of  the 
manors  of  Aynho  and  Beechworth  Castle,  whilst  in    the  possession  of 
members  of  this  family.

Zouche,  Knt.  In  9  Hen.  IV.  two  writs  of  diem  clausit  were  issued  on  her  obit. 
and  inquests  thereon  taken,  in  which  she  is  respectively  called  "  Elizabeth  quefuit 
twp'  JohHs  de  Arundell  CWr  defuncti,^^  (no.  20),  and  ^'Elizabeth  quefuit  ux'  Will'mi 
la  Zouch  de  Haringworth  Militis  defuncti,^'  (no.  45)  ;  and  the  identity  is  corrobo- 
rated by  her  will,  (on  the  authority  of  Dugdale's  abstract  in  Bar.  vol.  i.  p.  691,) 
dated  on  the  feast  of  St.  Ambrose  1408,  (4th  April,  seven  days  before  her  death,) 
wherein,  as  widow  of  the  said  William  de  la  Zouch,  she  desires  to  be  buried  in  the 
abbey  of  Tewkesbury,  where  her  brothers'  corpses  are  interred,  and  gives  to  her 
sons  Edmund  [Edward  ?]  and  Thomas  all  her  silver  vessels  to  be  equally  divided 
between  them.  The  brothers  were  Edward  le  Despencer,  who  died  at  Cardiff 
Castle,  set.  12,  Hugh  le  Despencer,  who  died  soon  after  his  birth,  and  Thomas  Earl 
of  Gloucester,  who  was  beheaded  at  Bristol,  who  were  all  interred  in  Tewkesbury 
Abbey,  the  burial  place  of  their  race.  (See  Sir  Robert  Atkyns's  Gloucestershire.) 
The  sons  were  doubtless  this  Sir  Edward  Arundell  and  his  brother  Sir  Thomas  of 
Beechworth  Castle.  She  was  probably  second  wife  of  William  Lord  Zouch  of 
Haringworth,  who  ob.  13  May,  19  Ric.  II.  (1396),  leaving  William  his  son  and 
heir  (by  a  former  wife)  then  aet.  22  and  more.  Sir  John  Arundel  her  first  husband 
had  died  only  five  years  before. 

f  Lady  Arundell  has  here  misunderstood  the  precise  question, — her  attention 
being  evidently  caught  by  the  parenthetical  part  of  the  inquiry.  The  answer  to  the 
question  should  have  been,  that  her  husband  Sir  Edward  and  the  mother  of  Sir 
William  Willoughby  were  cousins-german,  viz.  Sir  Edward  was  son  of  Sir  John 
Arundel,  elder  brother  of  Sir  Richard  Arundel,  father  of  Joan,  mother  of  Sir  Wil- 
liam Willoughby. 

The  annexed  scheme  of  descent  will  fully  illustrate  all  the  points  involved  in  the 
question,  the  parenthetical  statement,  and  Lady  Arundel's  reply  ;  the  parties  men- 
tioned being  distinguished  by  Italics.

Besides  these  possessions,  which  he  inherited  from  his  father.  Sir  John 

heir,  then  aged  30  years  and  upwards,  viz.  son  of  his  sister  Alice  de  Warren  then 
deceased.  (Esc.  21  Edw.  III.  (1  n'rs)  58.)  "Whereupon,  the  King  being  absent, 
security  was  taken  of  the  Earl  of  Arundel  for  his  relief,  and  his  homage  and  fealty 
respited  until  the  King's  return  to  England.  (Originalia,  21  Edw.  III.  m.  23.)  In 
23  Edw.  III.  (1349)  the  King  grants  to  Joan  Countess  of  Surrey  for  the  term  of 
her  life,  with  remainder  to  the  Earl  of  Arundel,  in  fee,  all  the  manors,  &c.  in  Sur- 
rey, Sussex,  and  Wales,  which  were  the  property  of  her  husband  John  de  War- 
ren, Earl  of  Surrey,  late  deceased.  (Pat.  Rolls,  23  Edw.  III.  p.  2.  m.  29,  as  quoted 
in  the  Collectanea  Topog.  vol.  VII.  p.  135.)  These  manors,  however,  of  CoUey 
and  Buckland,  although  they  belonged  to  her  deceased  husband,  must  be  ex- 
cepted from  this  grant,  in  consequence  of  the  entail  thereof  made  in  the  same 
year,  and  which  is  recited  in  the  above  inquest  of  50  Edw.  III.  The  Countess 
of  Surrey's  death  did  not  take  place  till  29  August  1361,  (Esc.  35  Edw.  III. 
p.  2.  no.  79,)  which  was  doubtless  the  period  referred  to  when  Richard  Earl  of 
Arundel  came  into  possession  of  the  castle  and  manor  of  Reygate  and  other  pro- 
perty of  the  Warrens.  None  of  these  particulars  respecting  the  life  estate  in 
her  husband's  property  of  the  widow  of  John  de  Warren,  last  Earl  of  Surrey, 
are  given  in  Manning  and  Bray's  History  of  Surrey. 

•»  The  manor  of  Westbeechworth  is  in  the  parish  of  Dorking,  and  has  been  sepa- 
rate and  distinct  from  the  parish  and  manor  of  Betchworth  or  Eastbetchworth 
as  far  back  as  the  reign  of  Henry  III.,  although  doubtless  they  were  one  at  the 
period  of  the  General  Survey.  Temp.  Henry  III.  Betchworth  or  Eastbetchworth 
manor  was  in  the  possession  of  the  Warrens,  from  whom  it  passed  to  the  Fitz- 
alans,  and  so  to  the  Nevilles  of  Abergavenny,  who  sold  it  in  4  Car.  1.  1629.  In 
Henry  the  Third's  time  Westbeechworth  manor  was  the  property  of  the  Wautons. 
From  them  it  passed  to  John  de  Berewick,  and  from  him  by  heirship  to  Roger  de 
Hoese  or  Hussey  2  Edw.  II.  It  remained  in  that  family  until  47  Edw.  III.  when 
Isabel,  widow  of  John  de  Hussey,  (who  ob.  44  Edw.  III.)  being  seised  for  her  life, 
did  jointly  with  Thomas  de  Revers,  her  then  husband,  levy  a  fine  of  her  interest  in 
this  manor  to  Richard  Earl  of  Arundel.  And  in  49  Edw.  Ill  (not  47,  as  in  Man- 
ning and  Bray)  the  conveyance  recited  in  the  above  inquest  of  50  Edw.  III.  was 
made.  (See  Manning  and  Bray.)

de  Arundel  had  a  conveyance  from  John  Lord  Neville  of  Raby,  by  deed 
dated  30  June,  50  Edw.  III.  1376,  of  the  manor  of  Aynho,  co.  North- 
ampton,'  in  fee  simple.  (Esc.  3  Ric.  II.  no.  I.)  He  was  Marshall  of 
England,  1  Ric.  II. ;  was  summoned  as  a  Baron  to  Parliament  in  1,  2, 
and  3  Ric.  II.  as  John  de  Arundell ;  and  suffering  shipwreck  off  the 
coast  of  Ireland  was  drowned  15  Dec.  3  Ric.  II.  1379,  (Walsingham) 
leaving  Alianor  his  wife  surviving,  who  had,  by  his  grant,  the  manor  of 
Postlyng,  in  Kent,  for  her  life  (Close  Roll,  4  Hen.  VI.  m.  1.  and  Esch. 
3  Ric.  II.  no.  1,  4  Hen.  IV.  no.  34,  and  6  Hen.  IV.  no.  31); 
and  for  her  dower  a  third  part  of  the  manors  of  Aynho,  county  of 
Northampton ;  Codelowe  and  Changeton,  Sussex ;  Bocklond,  CoUe, 
Westbeechworth,  and  Wanton  in  Surrey, — as  appears  from  the  In- 
quisitions taken  on  the  obit  of  her  second  husband.  Having  con- 
tracted marriage  in  her  widowhood  with  Sir  Reginald  de  Cobeham  of 
Sterborough  Chivaler,  a  commission,  dated  9  Sept.  1384,  issued  from 
the  Primate  of  all  England,  "  ad  dispensandum  cum  Reginaldo  de  Cobe- 
ham Milite  et  nobili  muliere  Alianora  relicta  Johannis  Arundell  Militis

Sir  Reginald  de  Cobham,  Knt.  died  6  July,  4  Hen.  IV.  1403,  seised 
in  right  of  Alianor  his  wife  of  her  dotation  in  the  aforesaid  third  parts  of 
manors  from  her  former  husband  Sir  John  de  Arundell.  The  writs  of 
"  diem  clausit "  to  the  King's  escheators,  wherein  he  is  called  "  Regi- 
naldus  Cobeham  Senior  Chivaler,"  are  dated  16  July,  4  Hen.  IV.  1403  ; 
pursuant  to  which  an  inquisition  was  taken  at  Brakele  upon  Saturday 
next  after  the  feast  of  St.  Peter  ad  Vincula,  4  Hen.  IV.  4  August  1403,

"  Lambeth  Registers  ;  Courtekay,  foL  58'',  59^  The  third  degree  of  consan- 
guinity here  mentioned  of  Sir  Reginald  Cobham  and  Alianor  his  second  wife  throws 
some  light  upon  the  subject  of  the  first  marriage  of  John  Baron  Mautravers,  of 
which  very  little  is  known,  and  strengthens  Vincent's  statement  that  Lord  Maltra- 
vers's  first  wife  was  Ela,  daughter  of  Maurice  Lord  Berkeley.  Smyth  and  Dugdale 
give  him  only  one  daughter,  viz.  Isabel  de  Berkeley,  wife  of  Robert  Lord  Clifford. 
The  evidence,  however,  of  this  dispensation  favours  rather  Vincent's  match.

before  John  Belton,  King's  escheator  in  the  county  of  Northampton,  in 
which  the  substance  of  the  finding  of  the  jurors  is,  "  quod  tenuit  ter-

1403,  before  Richard  at  Sonde,  King's  escheator  in  the  counties  of  Sur-

bury, on  Thursday  next  before  the  feast  of  the  Exaltation  of  the  Holy 
Cross,  4  Hen.  IV.  13  Sept.  1403,  it  was  found  that  Sir  Reginald  held 
the  manor  of  Postlynge,  in  Kent,  "  ut  in  jure  Alianore  uxoris  sue,  que

[Esc.  4  Hen.  IV.  no.  34.]  Alianor  his  widow  survived  till  10  Jan.

Chevaler,"  were  issued  to  the  escheators  on  14  February  following.  By 
the  inquisition  taken  thereupon  in  the  county  of  Kent,  it  was  found  that,

Somerset ;  and  in  the  return  made  thereto  at  "  Yevelchestre"  (Ilchester) 
in  the  county  of  Somerset,  on  the  17  March  following,  the  jurors  find, 
"  quod  predicta  Alianora  obiit  decimo  die  Januarii  ultimo  preterito "

It  has  been  already  shown  that,  notwithstanding  this  grant  for  life. 
Sir  John  had  reserved  one  third  of  the  manor  of  Aynho,  and  assigned  it 
in  dower  to  his  widow  ;  and  there  can  be  no  doubt,  although  the  uses 
are  not  declared,  that  the  Bishop  of  Ely  and  others,  and  their  heirs,  to 
whom  he  demised  the  reversion  of  the  estate  upon  the  death  of  Sir  Wil- 
liam de  Clinton  Ch'r  in  fee  simple,  were  merely  feoffees  in  trust, — pz'o- 
bably  to  protect  the  widow  in  the  enjoyment  of  her  jointure,  and  for  the 
use  of  his  heir.  Baker,  however,  is  manifestly  wrong  in  the  conjecture 
(vol.  i.  p.  546)  that  they  held  in  trust  "  for  his  younger  son  Sir  Edward 
de  Arundel ;  "  for  Sir  Edward  was  not  his  son,  but  grandson,  and  was 
not  born  at  the  period  of  Sir  John's  death.  [See  p. 335.]  From  the  omis- 
sion in  the  inquest  taken  upon  Sir  John's  obit  in  Surrey  of  the  manor 
of  Westbechworth,  and  from  the  fact  that  it  descended  to  him,  his  heirs 
and  assigns,  in  remainder,  upon  the  death  of  his  father  [Esc.  50  Edw, 
III.  (I  nr's)  52],  it  may  be  rightly  inferred  that  he  did  not  retain  his  fee 
simple  estate  in  that  manor  at  the  time  of  his  death,  but  had,  by  a  pro- 
cess similar  to  the  one  mentioned  above  respecting  Aynho,  conveyed  it 
to  feoffees  to  the  use  of  himself  for  life,  with  remainder  (subject  to 
the  assignment  of  one  third  therein  in  dower  to  his  wife  for  her  life) 
to  his  son  and  heir  ;  who,  as  will  be  shown,  held  it  in  fee. 

II.  Sir  John  Arundel  Chivaler,  Junior,  the  son  and  heir, 
was  found  in  the  inquisition  on  his  father's  obit  to  have  been  born  on  3 
Nov.  1364.  In  7  Ric.  II.  1383,  he  was  in  the  Scotish  war;  and  in  12 
Ric.  II.  1388,  in  the  King's  fleet  at  sea  with  Richard  Earl  of  Arundel 
his  uncle,  who  was  then  Admiral  of  England.  [Dugd.  Bar.]  Sir  John 
married  Elizabeth,  daughter  of  Edward  Lord  le  Despencer,  K.G.,  and 
sister  of  Thomas  Earl  of  Gloucester,  K.G.  (who  was  beheaded  at  Bris- 
tol, 16  January  1400,  and  buried  at  Tewkesbury.")  She  remarried 
William  Lord  Zouch,  of  Haryngworth,  who  obit  13  May  19  Ric.  II. 
1396,  whom  she  also  survived,  and  by  whom  she  appears  to  have  had 
no  surviving    issue.  P     Sir   John    having    conveyed    certain    lands    to 

wick,  CO.  Northumberland,  on  Tuesday  next  after  Easter  Day,  3  Ric.  II.  (27 
March  1380),  wherein  it  is  said  that  Sir  John  de  Arundel  Chivaler  deceased  held 
neither  lands  nor  tenements  within  that  county  in  demesne  or  service  of  the  King, 
or  any  one  else,  "  quia  predictus  Johannes  diu  ante  obitum  suum,  viz,  per  duos 
annos  et  plus  feoffavit  dominum  Thomam  Episcopum  de  Ely  fratrem  suum,  Ricar-

sibi  et  heredibus  et  assignatis  suis  imperpetuum."  The  identity  of  these  feoffees  is 
proved  by  the  inquisition  on  the  obit  of  Sir  William  de  Clinton.

estate  in  those  manors.  In  a  former  instance  we  see  that  an  inquiry  was  made  as 
to  his  father's  rights  in  these  and  other  manors,  in  consequence  of  their  having  been 
seised  into  the  King's  hands  upon  the  death  of  his  father,  Richard  Earl  of  Arundel. 
For  a  like  reason,  the  King  being  guardian  of  the  lands  and  persons  of  the  two  in- 
fant daughters  and  coheirs  of  Humphry  de  Bohun  last  Earl  of  Hereford,  Essex, 
and  Northampton,  who  was  chief  lord  of  the  fee  of  the  manor  of  Aynho,  that 
manor  is  entered  on  the  returns  already  noticed  of  the  3  and  7  Ric.  II.  Returns 
were  again  made  respecting  the  manors  of  Westbeech worth  and  Aynho  in  the  inqui- 
sition upon  the  death  of  Sir  Reginald  de  Cobham  Ch'r  of  Sterborough  4  Hen.  IV. ; 
because  at  that  time  they  were  in  the  King's  hands,  in  consequence  of  the  chief 
lords  of  the  fees  being  minors  and  King's  wards  :  viz.  Richard  Lord  le  Despencer, 
only  son  of  Thomas  above  mentioned,  and  Humphry  Earl  of  Stafford  who  was  heir 
of  de  Bohun.  These  manors  not  being  held  of  the  King  in  capite,  it  does  not 
appear  that  any  writ  or  return  respecting  them  was  made  at  a  subsequent  period. 

"  As  Edward  Lord  le  Despencer  died  11  Nov.  1375,  leaving  Thomas  his  sou  and 
heir,  then  aged  two  years,  who  lived  to  full  age,  it  would  be  more  correct  to 
have  said  "  de  herede  Edwardi,"  &c.

In  the  same  year,  he  received,  by  the  style  of  "  Johannes  Arundell 
de  Arundell  Chevaler,"  writs  of  summons,  dated  12  July  and  3  Aug. 
7  Hen.  VI.  1429,  as  a  Peer,  to  the  Parliament  ordered  to  assemble  at 
Westminster  in  September  following. '  In  this  Parliament  he  pre- 
sented to  the  King  a  petition  to  be  received  in  his  place  to  sit  in 
Parliament  as  Earl  of  Arundel,  by  virtue  of  his  tenure  of  the  castle, 
honour,  and  lordship  of  Arundel,  in  like  manner  as  his  ancestors,  the 
Earls  of  Arundel,  had  time  out  of  mind,''  In  8  Hen.  VI.  1430,  he 
was,  by  the  title  of  John  Earl  of  Arundel,  retained  to  serve  the  King 
in  his  wars  in  France,  with  2  knights,  57  men  at  arms,  and  180 
archers ;  ^  but  before  he  set  out,  he  made  his  will,  which  is  dated  8 
April  1430,  and  was  proved  15  February  1435-6,  wherein  he  men- 
tions Maud  his  wife,  and  Humphry  his  son.  ™  It  is  probable  that  he 
accompanied  the  court,  on  the  occasion  of  Henry  VI.  setting  out,  24 
April  1430,  to  go  into  France  for  the  purpose  of  being  crowned  there, 
as  the  Earl  of  Arundel  assisted  the  Duke  of  Burgundy  at  the  siege  of 
Compiegne  in  May  the  same  year  ; "  nor  does  it  appear  that  he  again 
returned  to  England.  At  the  anniversary  festival  of  the  Knights  of 
the  Garter  in  10  Hen.  VI.  1432,  he  was  elected  a  companion  of  that 
illustrious  order,  on  St.  George's  eve,  the  22  April  [Nicolas].  His 
petition  (wherein  he  is  styled  "  Emd  of  Arundel ")  to  sit  in  Parliament 
and  the  councils  of  the  King,  as  Earl  of  Arundel,  was  again  presented 
in  the  Parliament  summoned  to  meet  at  Westminster,  8  July,  1 1  Hen. 
VI.  1433.  After  the  case  had  been  duly  heard  and  examined,  the  King, 
with  the  advice  and  assent  of  the  Lords  Spiritual  and  Temporal  then 
assembled  in  Parliament,  admitted  him  to  have  and  possess  the  place 
and  seat  of  Earl  of  Arundel  in  Parliament  and  the  royal  councils,  which 
his  ancestors  heretofore  had.  ^  In  12  Hen,  VI.  1434,  the  King,  by 
charter,  created  him  Duke  of  Touraine  in  France,  with  limitation  to  his 
heirs  male. «  His  military  services  are  minutely  described  in  Tierney's

VI.  1435,  P  in  consequence  of  a  wound  received  whilst  attempting  to 
force  the  enemy  to  abandon  the  work  of  repairing  the  castle  of  Gerberoy 
whereby  he  was  taken  prisoner  and  carried  to  Beauvais.  His  body  was 
interred  in  the  church  of  the  Friars  Minors  at  Beauvais,  where  a  hand- 
some sepulchral  effigy  was  placed  over  it.  In  Stothard's  Monumental 
Effigies  there  is  a  faithful  representation  of  this  costly  figure.  His 
first  wife  is  said  to  have  been,  Constance,  daughter  of  Sir  John  de 
Cornwall,  K.G.,  Lord  Fanhope,  by  his  wife  Elizabeth,  daughter  of  John 
of  Gaunt,  Duke  of  Lancaster,  and  widow  of  John  de  Holand,  Duke  of 
Exeter.  i  If  it  be  so,  she  must  have  died,  in  or  before  142S,  at  which 
time  Lord  Mautravers  was  not  more  than  20  years  of  age.  He  married, 
circa  1428-9,  Maud,  daughter  and  heir  of  Robert  Lovell,  armiger,  and 
his  wife  Elizabeth,  daughter  and  at  length  sole  heir  of  Sir  Guy  de

Stafford,  knt.  (eldest  son  of  Sir  Hum.  Stafford,  Knt.  "  of  the  silver 
hand"  of  Hook,  co.  Dorset,)  who  died  circa  1427,  v.  p.  leaving,  by 
Maud  his  wife,  a  sole  child  and  heir,  Avice  Stafford  (nat.  4  Dec.  1423,

Maurs,  and  Poyningses,  and  her  paternal  inheritance  to  her  father's 
nephew,  Humphry  Stafford,  Ar.).  Maud  soon  after  married  secondly 
Lord  Mautravers,  and  by  him  had  issue  an  only  son  Humphry.  She

Sir  Edward  Arundell,  Knt.  of  Ayniio,  second  son  of  Sir 
John  de  Arundell  Chevaler  Junior,  was  not  born  before  1386.  It  is 
probable  that  his  father  entailed  upon  him  the  manor  of  Aynho,  by 
vesting  it  in  feoffees  to  certain  uses,  as  has  been  already  observed  in  note'' 
p.  335,  upon  the  Inq.  P.  M.  14  Ric.  11.  n.  1.  In  10  Hen.  IV.  1408,  he 
was  in  possession  of  Aynho,  and  appointed  Henry  Haylesham  bailiff  and 
warrener  of  his  manor  of  Aynho  :  *  consequently  he  must  then  have  been 
of  age.  His  birth,  therefore,  may  be  rightly  placed  in  the  year  1387.  In 
13  Hen.  IV.  1411 -2,  he  vested  his  manor  of  Aynho  in  feoffees  to  the  use  of 
himself  and  Elizabeth  his  wife  for  their  lives,  with  remainder  to  his  own 
heirs  and  assigns.*  He  died  soon  after,  and  was  buried  in  the  church 
of  the  Augustine  Friars  in  London,  3  Nov.  1412,  s.  p,  leaving  Elizabeth 
his  wife  surviving.  She  was  daughter  of  Sir  John  Scargill  and  his  wife 
Joan,  daughter  of  Sir  John  Warburton  of  Cheshire.  Being  tenant  for 
life  of  the  manor  of  Aynho,  she  resided  there  till  her  death.  In  7  Hen. 
VI.  1429,  (the  period  when  John  Eord  Mautravers,  her  husband's  ne- 
phew, attained  full  age,)  she  granted  the  reversion,  contingent  on  her 
life  interest,  of  the  manor  of  Aynho  to  Lord  Mautravers  ;  conse- 
quently, upon  her  death,  the  manor  descended  to  his  brother  and  heir, 
William  Earl  of  Arundel.  She  obit  30  April  1479,  according  to  the 
inscription  upon  her  monumental  brass  in  the  chancel  of  Aynho  church. 
In  that  inscription  her  husband  is  erroneously  called  John. 

Sir  Thomas  Arundell,  Knt.  of  Beechworth  Castle,  third  son 
of  Sir  John  de  Arundell  Chevaler  Junior,  had  by  the  gift  of  his  father 
the  usufruct,  if  not  the  possession,  of  the  manor  of  Westbeechworth. 
He  married  Joan,"  daughter  of  Henry  Moyns,  ^  and  obit  circa  1430, 
as  Joan  was  a  widow  in  9  Hen.  VI.  1431."  She  remarried,  before 
1437,  John  Guerdon."  By  her,  Sir  Thomas  left  issue  a  son  William 
(who  died  beyond  seay  ante  15  Hen.  VI.  1436-7,"  and  a  daughter 
Eleanor,  at  length  sole  child  and  heir.  Eleanor  carried  the  manor  and 
castle  of  Beechworth  in  marriage,  circa  1437,  to  Thomas  Browne,  Esq."

VOL.  II. 


The  writ  and  inquisition  respecting  the  probate  of  the  age  of  John, 
son  and  heir  of  Sir  John  de  Arundel  Ch'r  Junr.  and  grandson  and  heir 
of  Alianore  (Mautravers),  wife  of  Sir  John  de  Arundel  Ch'r  Senr.  and 
mother  of  Sir  John,  Jun.  are  records  which  have  hitherto  escaped  the 
researches  of  family  historians  and  genealogists  ;  nor  is  the  probate  no- 
ticed in  the  printed  calendars  of  the  escheat  bundles,  where  it  ought  to 
have  been  separately  and  distinctly  described  and  classed  with  the  es- 
cheats of  7  Hen.  IV.  Both  instruments  have  been,  for  a  very  long 
period,  mixed  with  the  mass  of  inquisitions  post  mortem  of  his  grand- 
mother Alianor  Arundel  in  the  escheat  bundle  of  6  Hen.  IV.  no.  31, 
where  I  accidentally  found  them.  They  contain  comprehensive  evidence 
of  three  generations  in  that  part  of  the  Fitzalan  pedigree  which  most 
needed  proof,  and  may  be  appropriately  attached  to  the  notices  of  his 
brother  Sir  Edward  Arundel  of  Aynho,  as  useful  data  in  fixing  the 
period  of  Sir  Edward's  birth. 

"  Henricus,  Dei  gratia  Rex  Anglie  et  Francie  et  Dominus  Hibernie, 
Escaetori  suo  in  comitatu  Buckinghamie,  salutem.  Quia  Johannes,  filius

bendum usque  ad  legitimam  etatem  heredis  predicti,  sibi  reddi ;  per 
quod  volumus  quod  idem  Johannes,  qui  apud  Ditton  in  comitatu  pro- 
dicto  natus,  et  in  ecclesia  ejusdem  ville  baptizatus  fuit,  ut  dicitur,  etatem 
suam  probet  coram  te.  Et  ideo  tibi  precipimus  quod  ad  certos  diem  et 
locum  .  .  probacionem  predictam  .  .  capias,"  &c.  &c.  Teste 
me  ipso  apud  Westmonasterium  viij  die  Augusti  anno  regni  nostri  sep- 
timo."  (1406.)

nominatus,  apud  manerium  de  Ditton  in  parochia  Sancti  Egidii  de

quaginta  sex  annorum  et  amplius,  pro  se  requisitus  et  diligeuter  exami- 
natus  super  etatem  predicti  Johannis  filii  Johannis,  dicit  per  sacramen-

sunt  XX  annorum  et  amplius. 

'  Margery  Lady  Molyns  was  lady  of  the  manor  of  Ditton,  and  was  living  there 
at  the  time  of  Lady  Arundel's  confinement.

To  the  Editor  of  the  Topographer  and  Genealogist. 


The  schedules  of  writings  from  which  the  following  extracts 
are  taken,  were  prepared  for  Sir  Cope  D'Oyly,  in  1624,  from 
the  contents  of  his  muniment  closet  at  Chislehampton.  I  have 
recently  examined  them  ;  and,  as  they  do  not  appear  to  have 
been  known  to  the  Bucks  and  Oxon  historians,  you  may  per- 
liaps  think  such  parts  of  them,  as  will  not  be  printed  in  my  Sup- 
plement to  the  History  of  the  D'Oylys,  worthy  of  a  place  in 
your  pages. 

In  this  trust,  I  send  you  what  follows :  viz. — the  title  to 
the  Oxon  D'Oylys'  estates  prior  to  their  own  ownership 
of  them.  And  I  cannot  make  this  communication  without 
expressing,  in  the  warmest  manner  I  am  able,  every  proper 
acknowledgment  for  the  courtesy  and  urbanity  of  that  gen- 
tleman who  has  lately  afforded  me  the  inspection  of  these  sche- 
dules, together  with  one  of  the  best  proved  family  pedigrees  of 
that  day  —  a  pedigree,  the  work  of  a  Lawyer,  viz.  John 
D'Oyly,  of  Gray's  Inn,  father  of  Colonel  Edward  D'Oyly, 
Governor  of  Jamaica.

CASE    OF   THE    REV.    PAUL     LIMERICK,    RECTOR    OF    KILMOE,    CO. 

The  following  document  is  curious,  not  so  much  with  respect  to  its 
immediate  subject,  the  glebe  of  Crookhaven,  as  from  its  incidental  no- 
tices of  the  tenure  and  customs  of  Church  lands  in  Ireland,  and  its  allu- 
sions to  historical  and  political  circumstances. 

Its  writer  was  the  Rev.  Paul  Limerick,  D.D.  Rector  of  Kilmoe, 
apparently  about  the  time  of  Queen  Anne.  He  mentions  his  prede- 
cessors Dermisius  Coghlan,  who  was  driven  to  England  by  the  wars  of 
Cromwell,  and  there  died;  Mr.  Parr,  who  was  drowned;  and  Mr. 

Bridget,  the  daughter  of  Dr.  Limerick,  was  married  Jan.  3,  1742,  to

of  a  Chancery  suit  between  the  D'Oylys  and  Perrotts  temp.  Eliz.  ?

over  to  the  D'Oylys  at  the  time  when  the  above  schedules  were  prepared.

The  parish  of  Kilmoe  is  situated  at  the  very  southern  point  of  Ireland, 
a  Httle  to  the  west  of  Cape  Clear.  "  In  a  peninsula,  formerly  called  the 
Aldern-head,  stands  Crook-haven,  once  a  place  of  some  note,  but  now  a 
small  inconsiderable  town,  near  an  excellent  harbour,  and  one  of  the  best 
outlets  in  Europe  for  vessels  to  sail  to  any  place  whatsoever.  The  lands 
about  it  are  exceeding  rocky  and  barren,  a  great  part  of  which  belong 
to  the  see  of  Cork.  .  .  The  extreme  point  of  this  tract  is  called 
Bally- vogy  head,  between  which  and  the  opposite  cape,  called  Missen- 
head,  anciently  the  Notium  Promontorium  of  Ptolemy,  is  a  great  bay."

Mr.  Limerick's  Case  with  regard  to  the  dispute  with  Mr.  Dali- 
court  and  the  late  Bishop  about  the  Glebe  of  Crookhaven. 

Mr.  Limerick  having  produced  several  proofs  to  the  late 
Bishop,  that  a  parcel  of  land  lying  about  the  church  of  Crook- 
haven  (which  had  been  demised  to  Sir  Richard  Hull  a  by  the 
name  Glebe,  together  with  other  lands  by  Bishop  Boyle  ^)  was 
an  ancient  glebe,  so  far  convinced  him,  that  on  the  spot,  be- 
fore several  witnesses  (one  of  which  lives  on  it  now),  he  ordered 
Mr.  Limerick  to  possess  himself  of  it,  assuring  him  that  he  would 
never  disturb  him,  and  that,  if  he  did  not,  none  of  his  successors 
ever  would  ;  on  which,  Mr.  Hull's  lease  then  expiring,  Mr. 
Limerick  took  possession,  and  set  the  land  as  glebe  for  two 
years  and  received  rent  out  of  it,  as  appears  by  minutes  he  gave 
of  it;  during  which  time  the  Bishop  had  the  other  lands  of  Crook- 
haven  sui'veyed,  and  in  that  survey  the  glebe  distinguished  from 
the  other  lands  as  glebe,  as  appears  by  the   plan   now  in  Mr. 

"  Sir  Richard  Hull  was  of  Lymcon,  in  the  adjoining  parish  of  Scull ;  but  the 
pedigree  of  Boyle  does  not  show  how  he  was  the  Bishop's  nephew,  as  is  stated  in 
p.  351. 

^  There  were  three  Bishops  of  Cork  of  this  name.  The  Bishop  here  meant  is  the 
last,  who  was  afterwards  Ardibishop  of  Dublin  (see  p.  351).  Michael  Boyle,  son 
of  Richard  Archbishop  of  Tuam,  was  made  Bishop  of  Cork,  Cloyne,  and  Ross,  in 
1660  ;  translated  to  Dublin  in  1G63  ;  and  in  1678  to  Armagh. 


Limerick's  hands,  a  duplicate  of  which  the  Bishop  had,  and  Mr. 
DaHcourt  now  has.  Two  years  after  Mr.  Limerick  was  in  posses- 
sion of  said  glebe,  the  Bishop  let  the  lands  (formerly  in  lease  to 
Mr.  Hull)  to  Mr.  Dalicourt  and  Mr.  Traverse,  and  expressly  ex- 
cepted the  glebe  of  Crookhaven,  as  might  appear  by  the  lease,  if 
that  could  be  had,  but  it  is  cancelled  and  never  registered ;  but 
it  appears  by  the  Bishop's  letter  to  Mr.  Limerick,  delivered  to 
him  by  Mr.  Dalicourt  and  Travers  on  their  first  coming  to  take 
possession  of  those  Bishop's  lands;  and  they  then  declared  to 
Mr.  Limerick,  that,  whether  that  piece  of  ground  had  been 
Bishop's  lands  or  not,  it  was  from  them  excepted,  and  on  that 
desired  the  favour  of  Mr.  Limerick  to  set  it  to  them,  because  (as 
it  lay  in  the  middle  of  their  farm,)  they  would  not  well  set  theirs 
to  a  good  rent  without  it,  and  Mr.  Limerick  was  prevailed  on  to 
set  to  them  at  3/.  for  that  year.  After  this  they  tampered  with 
the  Bishop  to  take  the  said  glebe  from  Mr.  Limerick ;  and,  be- 
cause he  could  not  do  it  with  a  good  grace  after  he  had  heard 
Mr.  Limerick's  proofs  and  answers  to  the  several  objections 
made,  would  have  Mr.  Limerick  to  leave  his  proofs  before  law- 
yers and  let  them  be  arbitrators  of  his  right  to  said  glebe; 
which  offer  Mr.  Limerick  would  not  comply  with,  but  would 
leave  it  to  the  determination  of  the  Bishop  himself,  who  had 
heard  his  proofs  and  given  him  the  land.  On  this  Mr.  Dalicourt 
refused  to  pay  Mr.  Limerick  the  31.  rent  contracted  for.  Mr. 
Limerick,  on  his  refusal,  processed  him  to  the  following  Assizes, 
and  obtained  a  decree.  The  Bishop  then  expressed  his  resent- 
ment against  Mr.  Limerick,  as  if  he  struck  at  him  through  Mr. 
Dalicourt's  sides.  On  this  Mr.  Dalicourt  enters  an  appeal,  and 
the  Bishop  sends  for  Mr.  Limerick,  and  desires  that  he  would 
let  things  remain  in  suspense ;  which  Mr.  Limerick  for  peace' 
sake  agreed  to  at  the  time  rather  than  quarrel  with  his  Bishop, 
but  on  this  consideration,  that  Mr.  Dalicourt  should  not  prose- 
cute the  appeal  at  next  assizes,  and  that  that  concession  of  Mr. 
Limerick's  should  no  way  prejudice  his  or  his  successors'  right  to 
said  glebe.  After  this,  notwithstanding  this  agreement,  Mr. 
Dalicourt  (Mr.  Limerick  being  in  the  country)  got  the  decree 
nilled  next  assizes,  and  continues  in  possession  of  said  glebe  ever 
since,  without  paying  any  rent  to  Mr.  Limerick,  though  Mr. 
Limerick  was  never  by  any  act  of  law  dispossessed  of  that  glebe, 
either  since  the  Bishop  gave   it   to  him  and  excepted  it  from 


them,  and  though  they  have  not  in  any  lease  of  those  lands  since 
taken  had  that  glebe  (which  was  once  excepted)  ever  expressly 
demised  to  them,  that  land  of  Ci'ookhaven  being  now  demised 
to  them  thus,  "  the  one  plowland  of  Crookhaven,  the  glebe  of 
Hull  ^  being  hereby  excepted,"  whereas  said  Mr.  Dalicourt  and 
Mr.  Travers,  desirous  to  have  said  glebe  annexed  to  the  other 
Bishop's  lands,  endeavour  to  suggest  to  his  lordship  that  that 
piece  of  ground  is  no  glebe  but  the  Bishop's  land,  and  conse- 
quently ought  to  be  inserted  in  their  lease  as  such,  the  said 
Mr.  Limerick  in  defence  of  the  rights  of  his  Church  here  offers 
the  several  proofs  which  have  been  already  produced  by  him  for 
said  spot  of  land  being  a  glebe,  and  therefore  his  in  right  of  his 
Church  there. 

The  proofs  produced  to  my  Lord  Bishop  of  Cork  : — 
First.  An  unanimous  agreement  amongst  all  the  inhabitants 
of  that  place  and  parish  both  in  giving  the  name  of  Glebe  to 
that  spot  of  ground  and  in  showing  the  bounds  of  it,  and  the 
like  agreement  amongst  the  oldest  persons  now  living  there,  in 
reporting  the  same  from  their  fathers ;  from  whence  it  may  be 
reasoned,  If  this  was  not  glebe,  but  Bishop's  land,  how  came  all 
to  agree  in  calling  it  glebe  time  immemorial  ?  Why  is  this  dis- 
tinguished from  the  other  land  by  a  different  title,  especially  that 
of  glebe  ?  Why  was  not  that  very  name  of  glebe  extinguished, 
if  for  no  other  reason,  yet  to  prevent  disputes  that  might 
arise  between  the  incumbent  and  Bishop's  tenant  about  it,  it 
being  notorious  that  Bishops,  as  such,  can  have  no  right  to 
glebes  ?  How  came  this  at  first  to  get  the  name  of  glebe,  if  it 
was  not  such  ?  Why  should  the  great  stone  in  the  street  be 
shown  as  the  bounds  by  all  ?  if  yet  there  was  no  distinction,  but 
all  was  Bishop's  lands,  this  was  a  distinction  without  a  difference, 
which  would  be  absurd.  Why  should  the  memory  of  this  glebe 
be  preserved  when  it  was  the  interest  of  the  Bishop,  or  his 
tenant,  to  have  it  destroyed  ?  To  these  questions  there  can  be 
no  good  answer  given  but  that  it  was  what  it  was  and  is  called 
— a  glebe. 

Second.  This  spot  lies  situate  about  the  church  of  Crook- 
haven,  as  glebes  usually  do,  and  there  are  several  reasons  as  well 
as  tradition  to  prove  that  this  was  the  mother  or  parish  church, 

''  This  important  word  is  obscure  in  the  MS.  both  here  and  where  it  again  oc- 
curs, p.  353. — Edit. 


for  this  was  a  much  larger  church  than  that  at  Kilmoe  and  bet- 
ter built;  the  chancel  part  was  of  hewed  freestone,  well  cemented 
with  shell  lime,  and  though  the  stone  was  much  mouldered  and 
eaten  by  age  and  weather,  yet  it  was  with  great  difficulty  pulled 
down  ;  whereas  Kilmoe  church  is  built  mostly  of  round  field- 
stones  with  clay  mortar,  materials  which  could  not  stand  long 
affainst  time  and  weather;  this  of  Kilmoe  was  roofed  and  slated 
very  lately,  as  appears  by  Mahony's  affidavit,  and  the  roof  car- 
ried in  Cromwell's  wars  to  the  fort  of  Crookhaven,  whereas  that 
of  Crookhaven  has  been  out  of  repair  time  immemorial ;  add  to 
this,  that  it  is  most  probable  the  parish  church  should  be  built  in 
the  town  where  there  were  most  inhabitants  and  on  a  harbour, 
as  all  the  other  churches  thereabout  are,  and  that  when  the  town 
was  destroyed  the  other  little  church  was  hastily  run  up  in  the 
centre  of  the  parish  for  the  convenience  of  the  scattered  inhabit- 
ants ;  from  hence  I  infer,  that  Crookhaven  was  the  mother  or 
parish  church,  and,  if  so,  why  not  endowed  with  a  glebe,  as  all 
other  churches  originally  were?  and  what  so  likely  to  be  a  glebe 
as  that  land  about  it?  especially  since  all  after  ages  have  agreed 
in  calling  it  one,  and  in  fixing  the  very  bounds  of  it.  And  this 
answers  the  objection  of  its  not  being  capable  of  being  endowed 
as  a  chapel,  when  the  mother  church  was  before  endowed, — if 
there  was  any  thing  in  the  objection,  as  I  presume  there  is  not, 
for  there  is  nothing  so  common  as  more  glebes  than  one  in  a 

1  find  a  terrier  of  two  glebes  lying  at  a  great  distance  from 
each  other  in  the  prebend  of  KillnamuUy  and  in  Carogaline. 
There  are  four  in  the  parish  I  was  born  in :  there  is  a  mother 
church  endowed  with  a  glebe  let  at  50/.  per  annum  and  a  chapel 
now  in  repair,  which  Bishop  Hickman  ^  would  not  consecrate 
because  he  could  not  get  a  sufficient  glebe  to  it ;  and  1  am  told 
your  lordship  would  not  consent  to  remove  the  church  of  Tullah 
to  Baltimore  because  Sir  Ralph  Freke  ^  would  not  endow  it 
with  a  glebe,  though  there  is  a  glebe  in  the  parish  already ;  and 

<=  Charles  Hickman,  Bishop  of  Derry  1702,  died  1713. 

"*  Sir  Ralph  Freke,  of  West  Bilney,  co.  Norfolk,  and  Castle  Freke,  co.  Cork, 
Bart,  married  Elizabeth,  eldest  daughter  of  Sir  John  Meade,  Bart,  ancestor  of  the 
Earls  of  Clanwilliam,  and  his  only  daughter  (and  heir  to  her  brother  Sir  John  Red- 
mond Freke,  Bart.)  was  married  in  1741  to  John  Evans,  Esq.  whose  son  John  as- 
sumed the  name  of  Freke,  and  was  father  of  the  present  Lord  Carbery. 


I  see  no  reason  why  other  Bishops  might  not  insist  on  the  same 
heretofore,  and  obtain  it,  especially  at  a  time  when  people  were 
so  in  granting  lands  to  pious  lises  that  such  grants  were 
at  last  forbid  by  law. 

Third.  It  appears  by  some  of  the  annexed  affidavits  that 
Colonel  Henry  Beecher,  ^  grandfather  to  present  Henry,  built 
a  fishing  palace^  to  the  east  of  Crookhaven  church  on  that 
spot  called  the  glebe,  in  opposition  to  William  Hull,  who  was 
possessed  of  the  rest  of  Crookhaven  not  the  Bishop's  land.  This 
was  done  in  Cromwell's  wars,  when  said  Beecher,  being  a  Crom- 
wellian,  was  in  power,  and  when  Dermisius  Coghlan,  who  was 
incumbent,  removed  to  England  ;  from  hence  I  infer,  that  if  Hull 
had  any  right  to  that  spot,  as  he  had  to  the  rest,  he  would  never 
have  permitted  him  to  build  there,  being  alway  at  strife  with  the 
other  about  the  fishing ;  and  his  building  there  shews  that  that 
spot  was  not  then  enjoyed  by  Hull.  If  it  be  asked  what  right 
Beecher  had  to  the  glebe,  the  answer  is  easie  ;  he  being  a  Crom- 
wellian,  in  the  times  of  confusion,  in  the  absence  of  the  incum- 
bent, finding  the  glebe  waste,  possessed  himself  of  it,  as  the 
Cromwellians  did  of  all  church  lands ;  and  after  the  Restoration, 
Hull,  who  was  a  King's  man,  turned  him  out  and  possessed  him- 
self of  it,  there  being  noincumbent  for  many  years  after;  and 
then  the  other  built  a  palace  on  the  other  side  of  the  harbour, 
which  is  still  standing,  and  Hull  had  it  put  by  his  uncle  Bishop 
Boyle  in  his  lease,  though  called  the  glebe  in  the  very  lease. 

Fourth.  Down  Survey  mentions  three  acres  as  part  of  the 
island  of  Crookhaven  distinct  from  the  rest,  which  contains 
131  acres;  now  this  must  be  the  glebe,  because,  first,  there  is 
not  any  other  denomination  of  land  distinct  from  the  rest  but 
the  glebe,  and  secondly,  because  the  glebe  surveyed  according  to 
the  bounds  shewed  by  the  unanimous  agreement  of  all  the  in- 
habitants, answers  exactly  to  the  number  of  acres  in  Down  Sur- 
vey ;   and   if  these  three  acres  be   the  glebe,  it  is  then  evident 

e  Colonel  Henry  Becher,  of  Creagh,  co.  Cork.  His  descendant  Mary  married 
William  Wrixon,  of  Cecils  town  in  the  same  county,  Esq.  who  took  the  name 
of  Becher,  and  was  father  of  Sir  William  Wrixon  Becher,  created  a  Baronet  of  the 
United  Kingdom  in  1831.

vol.  ii.  p.  315.  See  in  the  Gentleman's  Magazine,  New  Ser.  xxviii.  1847,  an  ab- 
stract of  the  deposition  of  Sir  Richard  Hull  detailing  his  losses  at  Crookhaven,  &c. 
in  the  rebellion  in  1641. 


there  was  a  glebe  there  at  the  time  of  Down  Survey  containing 
three  acres,  and  consequently  that  now  enjoyed  must  be  the  very 

These  proofs  carry  with  them  at  least  violent  presumptions 
(to  put  them  at  lowest)  that  that  spot  lying  about  Crookhaven 
church  is  really  what  it  is  called — a  glebe. 

Written  Proofs: — 

I  have  examined  the  office  where  I  ought  to  expect  evidence 
of  this  kind,  but  (either  through  the  neglect  of  former  Bishops 
in  not  enjoining  their  clergy  to  bring  in  terriers,  or  the  fault  of 
registers  in  preserving  them)  there  is  no  terrier  of  any  glebe  of 
six  years'  standing;  but,  as  this  doth  nothing  for  me,  it  doth  as 
litde  against  me,  inasmuch  as  if  this  sort  of  proof  was  necessary 
no  clergyman  in  the  two  dioceses  could  prove  his  glebe. 

The  only  proof  of  this  kind  I  produce  at  present  is  Mr.  Hull's 
lease,  in  which  in  a  parenthesis  the  glebe  land  of  Crookhaven  is 
demised  with  the  other  lands,  thus,  "  the  three  half  plowlands  of 
Crookhaven  (of  which  the  glebe  land  is  part) ;"  here  it  is  evident 
that  there  is  a  glebe  in  Crookhaven,  otherwise  it  had  never  been 
called  so,  but  the  whole  of  Bishop's  land  would  be  demised  with- 
out any  such  parenthesis,  and  there  can  no  other  reason  be  given 
for  expressly  mentioning  the  glebe  but  this,  viz. ;  that  that
